AA’s 7th tradition states that we are fully self-supporting through our own contributions. As such, we do not accept contributions from non-AA members or entities.
Area 35 accepts contributions from AA groups, districts and individual members of AA. Contributions by individual members of AA are limited to $3,000 per year. Area 35 does not accept contributions from non-AA groups of any kind or from individuals who are not members of AA.
