The Seventh Tradition states:  “Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions. “While contributions cover each group’s rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition is essential at every level of A.A. service.  It is both a privilege and a responsibility for groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but also their Intergroup/Central office, local services, district, area and the General Service Office remain self supporting.

In keeping with A.A.’s Seventh Tradition of self-support, we accept contributions only from A.A. members.

Contributions to Eastside Intergroup make it possible for us to operate as a service center dedicated to helping newcomers who are seeking A.A. as well as providing official A.A. materials and other services to eastside A.A. groups.  We maintain a 24 hour hotline and take twelfth step calls, publish a monthly newsletter and a quarterly meeting schedule of the greater eastside.  Your contributions also make it possible for us carry official A.A. publications including several different languages.  We carry coins and pamphlets and are here to support the A.A.  groups on the eastside.

The 7th tradition is where spirituality and money mix. According to Bill W., these two facts of our alcoholic life are inseparable. Every time we choose to do twelve step work with other alcoholics, we are choosing to spend time and money to aid our spiritual endeavors. Since AA and all groups within AA are self supporting through our own contributions, we must be aware of this fact each and every time we come together to help the alcoholic who still suffers.
