Fellowship Financial Statement from GSO

23 July 2018                                                                                                               

Dear Friends

It has come to the attention of General Service Office (GSO) at York that there is a rumour going around the Fellowship that Alcoholics Anonymous Great Britain is so awash with money it no longer needs to receive contributions from Groups, Intergroups or Regions. 

This includes the monies collected for Gratitude Week and the usual contributions forwarded onto GSO via the service structure guidelines.

THE FELLOWSHIP CAN BE ASSURED THAT BOTH THESE STATEMENTS ARE ERRONEOUS

Firstly, let it be stated that the financial condition of the Fellowship is both healthy and at present stable as detailed in the Final Report from Conference 2018.

The financial wellbeing of the Fellowship basically depends on the three income streams it has at its disposal namely:

  1. Personal contributions from the Fellowship Membership.
  2. Money received from the sale of Literature.
  3. Interest accumulated from the Fellowship’s stock holdings (Externally managed)
