Contributions & Donations



In keeping with our 7th Tradition which states:  “Every A.A. group ought to be fully self- supporting, declining outside contributions.”

Alcoholics Anonymous has no dues or fees, but we do have expenses. By tradition, A.A. is self-supporting through our own contributions. Contributions can be accepted only from members of Alcoholics Anonymous.

How is A.A. funded?     Services’ funding comes from group contributions, the Birthday Plan, central office/district/area contributions, and excess funds of A.A. events or conferences. The balance is made up of profits from the sale of A.A. literature.
