AA’s 7th Tradition
“The A.A. groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own members. We think that each group should soon achieve this ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the name of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals, or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then too, we view with much concern those A.A. treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated A.A. purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money, and authority.”
Frequently Asked Questions on Giving:
Question: Is there a limit to how much an A.A. member can contribute to [AA]?
Answer: Yes. That limit is $3,000 a year.
Question: Can people leave money to [AA] in their wills?
Answer: Bequests in wills are acceptable only from A.A. members, with a maximum of $5,000 from any one person, and only on a one-time basis—not in perpetuity.
Question: Can a non-A.A. member make a memorial contribution to [AA] in honor of an A.A. member who has passed away?
Answer: Though [AA] deeply appreciates these offers, we return checks—whether they are in memoriam or otherwise—to all non-A.A.s. A.A. does not accept contributions from non-members. When we receive a memorial contribution at [AA], we return the check with a letter letting the individual know of our tradition of self-support.
