When A.A. groups pass the self-support basket, what do they typically do with the money they collect?

To help support A.A.’s essential services, the General Service Conference suggests that individual groups, through an informed group conscience, adopt a specific contribution plan tailored to meet the group’s financial situation. Once the basic group expenses have been taken care of and a “prudent reserve” has been set aside to cover unexpected expenses, the group may decide to further carry the message by sending money to the following A.A. service entities: The local district, the area committee, the local intergroup or central office, and the General Service Board.
