Supporting S.L.A.A. the 60/40 Way

The 7th Tradition #

Every S.L.A.A. Group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

In financial matters, Tradition Seven states that Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous is self-supporting at all levels. What this means is that neither the Group, the Intergroup, nor F.W.S. accepts outside contributions.
