TREASURY SUGGESTIONS FOR GROUPS

 

For Groups: DANYC encourages groups to continue to have their in-house treasurer collect individual 7th tradition contributions. The 7th tradition states that each group be autonomous, declining outside contributions. By continuing to take the 7th tradition collection with the in-house treasurer the group is better able to maintain autonomy, and moves away from the compulsion to spend down. In order to do this some groups are doing the following:

• Ask members to keep a 7th tradition envelope in their home to be donated when the group again meets face-to-face

• Venmo handle—some groups use an individual member’s Venmo handle— see note about anonymity**

• PayPal Account—some groups have a PayPal account with an individual’s bank account--see note about anonymity**

• If you have other creative ways of collecting the 7th tradition please submit them to danycintergroup@gmail.com so we can add them to this list

** Anonymity: DA NYC Intergroup recognizes possible Anonymity issues when using an online method of payment. If using Venmo, we encourage members to make donations "private" to avoid the social media feed that publishes comments. We also encourage the Venmo Account Holder to create an Anonymous handle name. When using PayPal we suggest the Account Holder create an Anonymous corresponding email. Anonymous means creating an email or handle name that does not personally identify an individual member of  the group. Examples are: damondaynightsteps@gmail.com or 7tradWedBK. 

Tradition 12 states: Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities.
