Alcoholics Anonymous is self-supporting and does not accept outside contributions. By proceeding, you are indicating that you are aware of the 7th Tradition, and that you are a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.
BIRTHDAY PLAN CONTRIBUTIONS – everyone can help carry the message . . .
“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” While contributions cover each group’s rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition is essential at every level of A.A. service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but also their intergroup/central office, local services, district, area, and the General Service Office remain self-supporting. This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose — to help the alcoholic who still suffers. The amount of our contribution is secondary to the spiritual connection that unites all groups around the world.
BIRTHDAY CONTRIBUTION … you can contribute a penny, a dollar for each year of sobriety… in love and service…
