Basket Contributions - Where does the money go?

A.A. is self supporting, declining outside contributions

District 1 Committee (Southwest Michigan A.A.) has one primary purpose; to carry the A.A. message to the Alcoholic who still suffers.

District 1 Committee meets monthly, sometimes bi-monthly to discuss these efforts as a community of A.A. groups. Each group elects a GSR who is the conduit to communications throughout our SWMI Groups. District 1 Committee consist of our local GSR's, Committee Chairs, and Trusted Servants who serve A.A. as a whole. We are not an isolated entity, we serve and support the Area 34 Assembly which is one of 93 Area Assembly's throughout the U.S. and Canada. We support our East Central Region, and our life saving World Wide Fellowship. 

Locally in Southwest Michigan we are bringing meetings into the our local Jail and Treatment Center including A.A.s Bridging the Gap Program.

Southwest Michigan A.A. continues to provide a comprehensive Treasury report to the participating GSR's and Groups. Any funds remaining beyond our prudent reserve is distributed among the remaining A.A. Service entities. 


​A.A. Guidelines for Clubhouses 

Tradition 6: Problems of money, property, and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. We think, therefore, that any considerable property of genuine use to A.A. should be separately incorporated and managed, thus dividing the material from the spiritual.
