The Value of Self-Support
Money has never been a requirement for A.A. membership, and to keep it that way all of A.A.’s trusted servants have an ongoing obligation to inform groups and individuals about the value of self-support and the need for voluntary contributions throughout the Fellowship.— AA General Service Office

"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."
Reprinted from Self-Support: Where Money and Spirituality Mix, page 5, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.

"Every A.A. member wants every alcoholic in the world to have the chance that [s]he has had. Every A.A. member wants unity for our movement. Every A.A. member wants the good opinion of medicine, religion and the general public. We know we must have these things or the new [wo]man may never get [her]his chance. The Intergroup associations are the best insurance we can have that our life lines to the hundreds of thousands yet to come will never break or tangle. Let us always be generous. Let us warmly support Intergroup."
Bill W. 1949

An A.A. group may contribute any amount; for A.A. members, WAI follows the General Service Conference limit of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00) per year. Bequests in wills up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000) are accepted on a one-time basis.
