[解説] どれも英作文で使えるが、1) が最も普通。

◎ 1) keep (or fulfill) one's (or a) promise:約束を守る(なお、「約束する」= make a promise ≒ give one's word、「約束を破る」= break one's (or a) promise (or one's word) ≒ go back on one's word (or one's promise)。
keep one's word : 約束を守る(「約束」を意味する word は不可算名詞で one's word の形で使う)

○ 2) make good on O:O(目的・約束など)を果たす(普通の表現)

○ 3) make O good:(約束などを)履行する、果たす

○ 4) be true to O:O に忠実である、O を忠実に守る
