6 Ways AA Members Support Their Local Intergroup

  1. They answer telephones.

  2. They place their name on a Twelfth Step call list.

  3. They volunteer to help out in other ways, such as doing mass mailings or producing a newsletter.

  4. They encourage their home groups to make donations.

  5. They set up a program in their home group whereby individuals pledge a certain amount to intergroup--say, five dollars a month. The monies are collected and sent in at regular intervals.

  6. They make a personal donation to intergroup. Some AAs compute their annual donation according to the number of years they are sober (e.g., eight years' sobriety means an eight dollar contribution).
