Question:  How do online convenors collect meeting donations?

AnswerThey Pass the eHat!

In-person participants donate weekly to support their local meetings. During the LifeRing Summer Splash Fundraiser, we're asking you to please support LifeRing online meetings and meeting management with your recurring contribution


Think of this as LifeRing’s Mid-Year Pass the Hat!

If you attend one or more LifeRing online meetings every week, please consider a tax-deductible monthly donation during our Summer Splash Fundraiser. Not only will your monthly contribution help support your meetings and others like you in recovery – You can write it off on your taxes!

Your monthly donation makes a big difference! 

LifeRing relies on private donations from people like you. Knowing we can count on your monthly contribution allows us to move forward with confidence – to take proactive steps to bring more meetings to more people in need of LifeRing’s unique brand of recovery support. Priceless!

Recurring donations sound scary

Not at all! You can change or cancel your monthly donation at any time. It’s super easy: Just go to the LifeRing Donate webpage and select Monthly Donation. Add your donation amount to the Custom Amount field and then click Next. Done and done! You can login, edit or cancel your monthly donation at any time.

Why $5? 

Your $5 monthly donation is the equivalent of putting a dollar in the hat for a weekly meeting. Heck, if you contributed $5 at every local meeting, or if you attend more than one LifeRing online meeting weekly, please consider donating a little more.  During meetings, well, you can smile and say “I’m a LifeRing Sustaining Donor. I help make this happen!” (How great does that make you feel?)
