7th Tradition Basket
“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”
—from the Long Form of Tradition Seven
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.
In keeping with our 7th Tradition of self-support, Area 51 accepts contributions only from A.A. sources — such as groups, districts, and individual A.A. members. Contributions from individual members cannot exceed $2,000 per year and are NOT tax-deductible.
