Can I leave money to A.A. in my will?

The AA Cleveland District Office (CDO) will accept bequests only from deceased A.A. members, in amounts not to exceed $5,000, on a one-time basis, not as a recurring annual gift. In special circumstances and at the discretion of the Operating Committee, bequests in excess of $5,000 may be accepted and used to finance the annual operating expenses of the CDO, including a prudent reserve of one (1) year estimated operating expenses. Upon receipt of the Annual Financial Report, any and all excess funds shall be distributed to other A.A. District Offices or A.A. entities as determined by the CDO’s Operating Committee.
