How to Contribute To Intergroup
Because our 7th Tradition states we must be self-supporting, contributions are only accepted from AA Members, Groups/Meetings.
1) General Fund: This is the “7th Tradition Fund.” Monies in this account are used to “carry the message” of recovery to the suffering alcoholic. This fund is used to purchase literature, pay for the Hotline phone service, print AA schedules, pay for phone book listings, rent for archives storage, Intergroup meeting & Post Office Box rent, printing of the Alternative, postage and supplies, Insurance and Internet Hosting and Domain registration. Average expenses are approximately $850/month.
2) Activities Fund: Monies contributed to this fund are used for social activities associated with Intergroup sponsored gatherings. Historically this money has been used to finance the Summer Picnic, a New Year’s Eve Alcathon, Unity Events and other activities suggested by and voted on by the Intergroup membership.
A complete financial report is given each month at the Intergroup Meeting and all expenditures are subject to review and approval by the elected Intergroup Representatives. This report is available at the top of this page.
When sending contributions, please make the check payable to “Reading-Berks Intergroup” and indicate General Fund or Activities Fund on the bottom of the check in the memo section. Checks without this note will be deposited in the General Fund.
