Self Support and the Seventh Tradition

“Self-support begins with me, because I am part of us – the group. We pay our rent and utility bills, buy coffee, snacks and A.A. Literature. We support our central office, our area committee, and our General Service Office. If it were not for those entities, many new people would never discover the miracles of A.A.*”

Faithful Fiver Pledge

Join your fellows who graciously pledge $5 or more each month to support Central Office.

Thank you for becoming a Faithful Fiver! Your pledge supports us in our effort to carry the A.A. message of hope and recovery to the still suffering alcoholic and to coordinate the services that are impractical for individual A.A. groups to provide.

In keeping with the Seventh Tradition, Intercounty Fellowship of A.A. limits contributions to two sources: A.A. groups, and individual A.A. members. While there is no limitation on the amount an A.A. group may contribute, we follow the limits established by the General Service Conference for individual contributions, currently not more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00) per year. Together, group and individual contributions make it possible for us to coordinate the services which individual groups in San Francisco and Marin cannot provide and to facilitate twelfth step work.        

For additional information regarding A.A.’s tradition of self support, please consult the pamphlet Self-Support: Where Money and Spirituality Mix, the A.A.® Guidelines on Finance, and visit www.aa.org.

We ask that group treasurers include Group Name (as it appears in the meeting schedule), day, and time for contributions to the Central Office so we can maintain our records properly.

When making contributions to the General Service Office in New York, please include your Group Service Number (GSN). If you do not know your GSN, please contact the GSO Records and Groups desk at (212) 870-3132. The H&I committee requests that a self-addressed envelope be sent with your contribution.
