SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
* Less than 44% of groups contribute to the General Service Office.
* Costs of Services provided by G.S.O. are $6.32 per member per year
* A.A. literature sales account for 56% of G.S.O.'s income.
* What is the value of your sobriety?
* Does your group know that contributions may be made online at AA.org?
* Give until it feels good.
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.

"Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women
who share their experience, strength and hope with each other
that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.
A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution;
does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
