No, contributions to A.A. do not support Grapevine. Grapevine is supported entirely through sales of the magazine and related items. Individuals and groups may sponsor gift or “carry the message” subscriptions for individuals, groups, hospitals, correctional facilities or other institutions. In contrast to G.S.O., which receives group contributions to support group services, Grapevine does not accept contributions from the Fellowship. AA Grapevine, Inc. finances are reviewed by the trustees’ Finance Committee, and on an annual basis funds in excess of current operating needs are transferred and invested with the General Service Board Reserve Fund.
