"There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions."
The Houston Intergroup (Al-Anon Family Group Service, Inc.) is registered as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, with the IRS, and is "...self-supporting, declining outside contributions."
IRS changes requirements for charitable deductions.
Many members from groups ask us where they should send group contributions, so we have provided details below.
1) Houston Al-Anon Information Service, or "Intergroup"
This is the intergroup structure that supports the Houston Al-Anon office (Intergroup), serving groups and members in Houston and several surrounding counties. We provide information and literature for Districts 4, 5, and 7.
ETAAA (serving East Texas Area, #53) maintains group records and area archives, performs many administrative and public outreach functions, and hosts Assembly meetings for all Al-Anon Districts of East Texas.
The ETAAA World Service Delegate (a DR elected for a three-year term), attends three annual conferences which serve Al-Anon worldwide, sharing information from the conferences with ETAAA and our local groups. Group contributions help support these functions.
Please see pages 121-122 of the Service Manual for a complete list of their activities. For more information, visit their website at Al-Anon Headquarters.
