Thank you for your support of Al-Anon Family Groups
Al-Anon’s Tradition Seven states:
“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 line with a decision made at WSO Conference 2016 , SA Conference 2017 accepted that:
“Contributions in Memory of Deceased Al-Anon Members may be received as per the following policy: The Al-Anon Family Groups General Service Office of South Africa accepts contributions in memory of deceased Al-Anon members from family who are not Al-Anon members.
The fellowship recognises that accepting such contributions can give comfort to families as described in Tradition Five. The Al-Anon Family Groups South Africa General Service Conference defines family as anyone who has a close relationship of loving care and concern for another. The individual donor defines his or her relationship to the deceased Al-Anon member.
This one-time gift of gratitude is limited to an amount not greater than the rand equivalent of US $500 at the time of the contribution. Memorial contributions by non-members are not solicited.”
