I have no idea how you'd word it, but a certificate like the donation gift
cert. would be a good thing to go with a pledge bank. People can print out a
document that says "I am committed to donating $x per month to Wikimedia to
spread access to knowledge."

That could work. I think it is important that we try and move away
from discrete fundraisers and try and get donations year round, and
voluntary reminders to donate could work well.
