The ACA WSO donation fund flow model of ACA is based on a 60/40 disbursement. After the group meets its monthly expenses and sets aside money for a prudent reserve, 60 percent of what is left over is sent to the local Intergroup and 40 percent is sent to WSO. A prudent reserve usually is the amount that equals two month’s worth of meeting expenses. The meeting expenses would include rent, utilities, and other group expenses. ACA Fellowship Text, pg. 609.
How can you help ACA by helping Intergroup?
The 7th Tradition reminds us that Intergroup ought to be fully self supporting, declining outside contributions. We do welcome help from groups and members that wish to support our efforts. Here are a few ideas of how you can help:
- Donate money
- Organize a garage sale
- Host a fundraiser
- Support the ACA Mingus Mountain Retreat at your meeting
- Announce our events at your meeting
What you need to know is that Intergroup is not here to tell you how to run your meeting, impose our opinions on you, or needlessly collect your funds. We are here to support you, help you build your meeting, help build ACA in Arizona, and ensure our collective voices are heard by the ACA WSO. Read more about what we do by clicking here.
