Tradition Seven

Contributions & Self-Support

Al-Anon’s Tradition Seven
“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 Family Groups of Southeast Wisconsin is self-supporting, accepting contributions only from Al-Anon members and declining outside contributions.

Al-Anon members may contribute to Al-Anon Family Groups of Southeast Wisconsin (aka the Al-Anon Service Center) through:
