Al-Anon’s Seventh Tradition
“Every 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 Al-Anon service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but all service levels, remain self-supporting. This keeps Al-Anon free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose of supporting families and friends of alcoholics. In keeping with Al-Anon’s Tradition Seven, Al-Anon is self-supporting accepting contributions only from Al-Anon members and declining outside contributions.

I am not an Al-Anon or Alateen Member
In keeping with Al-Anon’s Tradition Seven requiring every service level to be self-supporting, including the Al-Anon Family Groups of Georgia and the Al-Anon World Service Office (WSO), we only accept contributions from Al-Anon members. The only exception is a one-time “Memorial Contribution”. Contributions in memory of deceased Al‑Anon members from “family” who are not Al‑Anon members up to $500 are accepted. “Family” is defined as anyone who has a close relationship of loving care and concern for another.
