Tradition Seven: “Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”
OAPP is a collection of telephone, zoom, and in-person meetings that follows the instructions laid out in the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book. We incur on-going expenses to maintain an online presence and to use various automated tools to assist in our Primary Purpose -- which is to carry the message to compulsive eaters who still suffer.
Tradition Seven states that we are self-supporting through our own contributions. OAPP maintains a Treasury funded by our Seventh Tradition contributions which is used to pay our on-going expenses. Any amount collected above and beyond a prudent reserve is forwarded as a donation to OA World Service.
Seventh Tradition contributions may be made electronically via PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle.
