Central Office “exists to aid the groups in their common purpose of carrying the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers.” In order to accomplish this, your support is vital. You may see our financial status in the table below. Your Central Office is financed solely by:
• Direct financial contributions from A.A. groups
• Tax deductible contributions from individual members up to $3000 yearly. Your accountant or tax professional can advise.
• Proceeds from sales of Alcoholics Anonymous World Services and Grapevine literature and other related A.A. material.
• Special events by and for A.A. members, keeping in mind our Seventh Tradition.
• Make a monetary contribution via check or money order, payable to Central Office of Albuquerque. Mail or drop off in person at 1921 Alvarado Drive, NE Albuquerque, NM 87110.
• “Faithful Fiver” or “Trusted Tenner”, who and contribute either $5 or $10 monthly. Set up Auto Pay or Bill Pay with your bank to automatically send us a monthly contribution in any amount you choose. What could be easier? Use the address in the paragraph immediately above.
• Use the Paypal button at the top of this page.

Central Office cannot be fully effective without volunteers. We need Desk Workers, who work a regular shift, answering phone calls and making selling AA merchandise. This is a great opportunity to help the alcoholic in need. The following shifts are currently available:
Every other Sun. 3-6;
2nd & 4th Mon. 12-3;
Every Tues. 3-6;
Every other Thurs.3-6;
Every Sat. 12-3.
To apply to become a Desk Worker, please drop by the office and ask for the application. You will receive the required training from the Coordinator, Alternate Coordinator, or an experienced volunteer.
The Steering Committee is a committee that monitors and supports the overall operations of the Central Office. Members must be members of Intergroup, representatives of groups listed in our Meeting Schedule.
The following table shows the Net Income for 2020, through October. October was our first month in the black since the pandemic began! Thank you all for you generosity!
We have a net loss of $5,447.48 for the calendar year to date. Because of the generosity of the Fellowship in the Districts served by Central Office (both groups and individuals), and the Prudent Reserve we maintain, we believe that we have adequate funds to continue operating for as long as that generosity is maintained.
