“Every OA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.“
Our Seventh Tradition states that Overeaters Anonymous “ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” While no fees or dues are required for membership, OA members have a responsibility to keep our rooms open, provide opportunities for fellowship, and spread our message of recovery.
Groups frequently choose to send 60 percent of excess funds to their intergroup or service board, 10 percent to their region and 30 percent to WSO. Groups may also choose to contribute all excess funds to their intergroup/service board, and allow those service bodies to contribute to the region and WSO.
