The 7th Tradition
Overeaters Anonymous meetings are self supporting through our own contributions neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations.
OA's 7th Tradition reminds each OA member to contribute to the expenses, organization, and operation of our fellowship. We do not accept money or donations from outside sources so that we can keep our focus on our primary purpose, which is to carry the recovery message to compulsive eaters who are still suffering. Most OA members give $1-$5 at each meeting they attend to financially support the fellowship. These contributions are voluntary. There are no fees for membership.
