With Literature Order
FA’s World Service Office
The WSO has critical responsibilities and performs essential functions that keep the fellowship running. Among them are:
How to Donate Using Zelle
How to Use ZELLE® To Donate to the Fellowship
Zelle is a computer application that enables you to electronically send and receive money to and from people you know. Once you enroll in Zelle, you only need the preferred email address or mobile phone number of the intended recipient to donate money.
Zelle is offered by over ninety (90) banks and credit unions in the United States, including Capital One, Wells Fargo, Chase, and Bank of America. To get started, make sure you’re enrolled in your bank’s mobile banking app. Go to your bank’s website or call their help line to find out how to do that.
Then, log into your mobile banking account and follow the directions to select the “Zelle” service. To send money using Zelle, you simply select the recipient from your mobile device’s contacts (or add a new recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number), enter the amount you’d like to send, review, then hit “confirm.” For Families Anonymous, you’d use email@example.com.
The money you send goes directly from your bank account to the recipient’s bank account (even if it’s in a bank different from yours), and the funds are available in minutes. There’s no fee, no checks to write, and the transaction is secure. Once you send money to a particular person or entity (such as FA), their information is saved in your Zelle account so making future donations is easy: log into your online banking account and go to the Zelle service, click on the FA name, and enter the amount you want to give.
Now that many former face-to-face meetings are being held online, a number of local FA groups have also adopted Zelle as a way to virtually “pass the basket.” Please take a few minutes now to explore how you can use your online banking app and Zelle to conveniently support your local FA group and the World Service Office.

(Note: The newsletter editors reserve the right to edit submitted statements to meet space and editorial standards.)
We recommend you consult with an appropriate professional (such as your estate-planning attorney, insurance professional, or financial-services professional) to determine (a) the proper procedures and precise wording for making such donations and designations, (b) the legal requirements applicable in the locale where you reside, and (c) the implications for your estate. You may also obtain more information from the WSO.
Families Anonymous 7th Tradition
FA is bound by our 7th Tradition, which states that “Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” Thus, FA can accept donations only from within the fellowship. This means only from you, your FA fellow members, your group, and other FA groups, intergroups, and national service boards.
You can also “spread the word” further among your fellow FA members by printing out copies of WSOF-09 Supporting Your Fellowship and distributing them at your meetings.
