Personal Contribution Guidelines
In keeping with our Seventh Tradition, AA only accepts contributions from AA members, AA groups, or other AA entities. The General Service Conference limits individual contributions to $5,000 per year. This also applies to a one-time bequest of $10,000 in the will of a deceased AA member.
