How is Central Office financed?

“When we meet and defeat the temptation to take large gifts, we are only being prudent. But when we are generous with the hat, we give a token that we are grateful for our blessing and evidence that we are eager to share what we have found with those who still suffer.”
– Bill W.

Central Office is financed through group contributions, individual contributions, newsletter contributions, sponsored activities, and sale of AAWS literature.
brief financial statement is published monthly in the Central Office newsletter, “The By The Way”, as well as lists of all group contributions. Detailed financial reports are presented at the monthly Delegate’s meeting.

Groups contribute monthly to Central Office while individual members may contribute up to $3,000 yearly through the birthday plan, individual contributions and in memoriam. Support from your group demonstrates gratitude for sobriety and a willingness to share with the alcoholic
