When do I have to book a multi-year pledge, Accounting Standards

Hi,

I work at a non-profit that recently received a $250,000 stock donation which is payment for a $1M pledge. The donor has written in an e-mail that he would like to give us the $1M. I know we recorde the $250,000 already received as revenue but am I required to book the $750,000 pledge if the donor plans to send $250,000 the next 3 years? We would rather not record the pledge in case the donor decides not to fulfill the pledge but didn''t know if accounting rule requires us to record the pledge.
