Seventh Tradition Giving to the Intergroup
Tradition Seven: Every ACA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions. Self- Supporting means that we, the members of ACA, contribute to our own support, and we rely on no other person, agency, or outside influence for financial assistance. Big Red Book page 522.
There are a number of ways to donate to the work of the Intergroup. We use Paypal to process any electronic payments to the Intergroup. You can use Paypal which ever way is more convenient for you. You can also send a check if that is easier for you. You will also see information on donating through Amazon below. See below for instructions. Please note if you are sending a donation as a group putting your group name, city, meeting day and time will help us better identify you when we report each month.

If you are an Amazon Shopper you can also donate using “Amazon Smile”
Point your internet browser to https://smile.amazon.com/. There you will have the opportunity to pick a charity you’d like to give to and every time you purchase something from Amazon a percentage will be donated to the Intergroup. When choosing the charity you’d like to donate to search for West Great Lakes Adult Children of Alcoholics Intergroup NFP. Then whenever you shop at Amazon go to https://smile.amazon.com/ or be sure to activate smile on your IOS or Android Amazon App and from that point on you don’t even have to think about it.
