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

While contributions cover each groups 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.

Although the amount of our contribution is secondary to the spiritual connection that unites all groups around the world, we may want to remember that a dollar does not support as many services as it used to.

Please only contribute if you self identify as an AA member! Area 59 uses PayPal to manage contributions. However, if you don’t have a PayPal account, you can also use a credit card to make a contribution thru PayPal
