How you can support NAIGSO-AA:
- The NAIGSO-AA arrived where we are today through
the dedicated assistance of a few AA groups and AA members who have contributed hundreds
and hundreds of dollars and volunteered many, many hours of personal time to lay
the framework to provide service to the Native American alcoholic. As a labor of
love, they have shouldered the expense of the groups and individuals yet to come

- Register your AA group. Register as an individual
member (loner). Indicate your desire to be included in Native American AA Directory.
We do ask that all groups contribute routinely to NAIGSO - no matter what the amount
- and that each individual member on his or her sobriety birthday contribute one
dollar per "recovery" year to NAIGSO-AA.
