"Every OA group ought to be fully

self-supporting, declining outside contributions."

Spiritual Principal: Responsibility

During this COVID-19 pandemic, Zoom is paid for by our

Intergroup, for meetings' use and for members

holding roles for organizing and chairing meetings.  

You may also consider calling a group conscience to

discuss how your meeting would like to handle

Tradition 7 in these unique times.

Our local groups use donations for literature and

other needs, and donate to Intergroup, Region 5 and

World Service, following a suggested formula of

60% to IG, 30% to WSO, and 10% to Region 5.



Since it is more difficult to donate directly to our groups, you may want to consider donating directly to one of these organizational levels and attribute your donation to a specific meeting group# represented for reporting.

If your group Treasurer is taking donations, please send them to your group's Treasurer per the group's guidelines.

Each registered meeting has a "Group #" which is located in the last column of our meeting list.  Group # are also assigned for Intergroup and Region 5.

At our Central Ohio Service Intergroup one can contribute through Zelle.

Check your bank account to see if you have it. If you do, add:

Send To Name:  Central Ohio Service Intergroup;

when prompted for email use: Treasurercosig@gmail.com


Send a check to our Post Office Box (we collect at least monthly):  

Go to our Contact Us page for address.  (COSIGOA Group# 09134)

Use this COSIGOA Contribution form to print for checks, but is not required.

It is a good option if you want to contribute to multiple groups using

one check and can itemize contributions by Group#.
