Al-Anon is Self-Supporting

As we all know, money can become the primary focus of any relationship or organization. Our founders provided guidance in this area, in planning for Al‑Anon Family Groups (AFG) to remain focused on recovery, not financial needs.

Tradition Seven states, “Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”

In line with it’s Seventh Tradition of being self-supporting, AFG relies solely on voluntary contributions from members, and the sale of  Conference Approved Literature (CAL) to cover all its operational costs: facilities, personnel, public outreach, and more. The groups, as well as the World Service Office (WSO), decline contributions from non-members and accept no outside funding from government, foundations, or other agencies.

If each member contributed two cents extra per week, that is approximately $75,000 a year. If every Al-Anon group in the USA sent an additional $15.00 per year to Al-Anon World Service Headquarters, annual expenses would be fully covered.

Tradition 11: “Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, and TV. We need guard with special care the anonymity of all AA members.”
