7th Tradition Note:
While our Fellowship has a long and strong history of stepping up when the call for financial help goes out, it is worth noting that cash flow is important for our groups and service organizations to be economically healthy. Therefore, I am sending this loving request to consider making your contributions online, or by mail, using the links and mailing addresses on our contributions page found at the top of our website. Please consider contributions on all levels including the GSO, Area, Districts, and Intergroup. Small amounts make a difference.
During our current COVID-19 pandemic, many Home Groups have suspended their in-person meetings. Many have set up on-line “virtual” meetings using programs like Zoom. There is a significant potential financial impact from this because the 7th Tradition may be overlooked. AA Service Organizations that support the fellowship still have expenses. Among other things, these organizations make sure there’s a meeting schedule with your meeting on it, provide a website, and provide AA literature. Please consider online opportunities you may use to continue to send contributions to your districts, inter-groups, Area 59, and A.A. GSO (General Service Office. in New York). Most of these service entities operate with a prudent reserve. For example, Area 59 currently has a 3-month reserve. My understanding is that G.S.O. currently has a 7 month prudent reserve which is shrinking.
“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. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
