Financial policy

The seventh of our Twelve Traditions states: “Every C.G.A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”

We accept no money from any organizations or from any individuals who are not members. We do not use our funds to contribute to any other cause or organization, no matter how worthy.

At the group level, our funds are typically used to pay for meeting space and literature. Excess funds are typically passed along to our service structure, called C.G.A.A. International Services.

At the International Services level, our funds are used to pay for creating and publishing our literature, supporting CGAA groups, answering inquiries, and maintaining our website. Any excess funds are used toward lowering the prices of our literature.
