We Need YOUR support!
I am making a direct appeal to AA members who have the ability to make a personal, direct donation to Portland Area Intergroup. As most of you know, we have been working diligently to reduce expenses at Portland Area Intergroup. The last big effort was when we reduced our rent by nearly $2000.00 a month, when we moved to our current office space.
The fact remains that current donations are not enough for us to meet our expenses. Several years ago, we were forced to use our prudent reserve, and we have tried to rebuild it since that time without any real success. Our financial condition is critical at this time. We must increase our cash balance so we can pay our bills and AAWS for literature on time.
We are a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit charitable organization that can take tax deductable donations from individuals. If you know AA members that have the ability to make a donation such as this, please ask them to consider doing so. Individual donations can be up to $3,000.00 a year for a personal donation. There are no limits on donations from groups. If you need a current financial statement please ask and we will send it to you.
Gratefully in your service,
Central Office Manager
The prudent reserve has saved us, as we have needed to use it in accordance with the principal it is based on. When we are generous with the hat, we give a token that we are grateful for our blessings and evidence that we are eager to share what we have found with all those who still suffer."

Thank You, Portland Area Intergroup.
