  1. Join citizens across the globe by making the Pledge to be a Global Citizen. Be sure to use your Caterpillar email address.

“The Caterpillar Foundation supports Global Poverty Project’s Global Citizen and the Earth Day Network because it aligns with our mission to turn the spiral of poverty into a path to prosperity. We believe encouraging Caterpillar employees to take action will help the Foundation accomplish our aspirational goal to place 50 million people on the path to prosperity by 2020,” said Caterpillar Foundation President Michele Sullivan. “The Global Poverty Project, a key partner of the Caterpillar Foundation, is a global education and advocacy organization working to end of extreme poverty by 2030.”
