Alcoholics Anonymous:  Contributions & Self-Support
The Seventh Tradition states: “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.



The Seventh Tradition of Alcoholics Anonymous states:  “Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”

We realize that even though the immediate need for virtual connections is relatively inexpensive, the real expenses of our fellowship continues. Please consider continuing to practice our 7th Tradition contributions.

Your 7th Tradition contributions help us to pay for meeting rent, zoom, website, administrative expenses including the technology required to run online meetings during COVID-19 closures. Once our In Person group meetings return to some normalcy, you’ll be able to make your 7th Tradition contributions at a meeting.

If you wish to contribute to our 7th, you can do so either by etransfer to or you may choose to use the PayPal Option.
