Many Al‑Anon members have designated Al‑Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc. as a beneficiary in their will, in gratitude for the help given by our fellowship during their lifetime. Designating a bequest to Al‑Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc. is one way to ensure that our program will be there for future generations. These gifts help us to continue to carry the Al‑Anon message to those family members and friends of alcoholics still seeking help and hope.

Al‑Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our tax number is available upon request. Your attorney can help with the designation process.

Members can bequeath an unlimited amount to Al‑Anon Family Groups; however, in keeping with the longstanding policy, earmarked bequests or those designated for a specific purpose cannot be accepted. All gifts to the World Service Office (WSO) are appreciated, no matter the size. Since the WSO abides by our Seventh Tradition of self-support, we are grateful when members send us a note notifying us of their decision and membership, so we can accept the gift as intended.
