What Is DA's 7th Tradition?

Our Seventh Tradition states, “Every DA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”  

StepSponsorDA is an autonomous group and contributions go toward funding the phone workshops and recordings, online StepSponsorDA, contributions to the General Service Office, DA Telephone Intergroup, and the conference travel expenses of our General Service Representative (GSR).

Please give as generously as you can. We have as many as eighty listeners and participants per series but average only twenty contributors. Phone groups like ours do have expenses so please consider supporting us financially just as you would a face-to-face group.

If you cannot donate at this time, please keep coming back. No one will be turned away from our workshops — either phone or online — for a lack of funds. To contribute electronically, use any of the buttons marked "7th Tradition" in several places on this website, including in the header and footer of every page and below. If you prefer to make your contribution by physical mail, please send an email to info@stepsponsorda.com to ask for our Treasurer's address.
