Every CoDA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
CoDA groups encourage responsibility in financial matters, such as paying for meeting room space, literature and refreshments. We maintain treasuries through voluntary contributions from members only. After the group meets its’ own needs and obligations, it is suggested that excess funds over and above a prudent reserve be distributed to the larger communities of CoDA: Local, Provincial, Regional, National or International. Co-Dependents Anonymous does not accept large contributions from any individual, nor do we accept money, space or services from non-CoDA sources. Thus, we maintain accountability and independence.

Please make cheques payable to Co-Dependents Anonymous.
CoDA Canada and Co-Dependents Recovery Society use donations to fund new Canadian printing, and to assist attendance at the annual CoDA Service Conference (CSC). They also send a 7th Tradition donation to CoDA World Fellowship on an annual basis, as well as royalties for the privilege of printing literature in Canada. Other expenses include maintaining our website and Canadian CoDA phone line (1-604-239-1042), as well as assisting new groups with startup literature.
