Back to Basics Foundation Needs Your Help
1997, the Back to Basics Foundation has been carrying Dr. Bob's
"keep it simple" message of recovery to the A.A.
community through the Back to Basics Beginners' meetings.
To date more than 350,000 members of A.A. have taken the Twelve
Steps in the more than 3,000 Back to Basics A.A. Beginners' meetings
and groups that have formed throughout the United States, Canada,
and around the world.
are a 501 (C) (3), not-for-profit, corporation.
We serve the A.A. community by distributing recovery
literature, posting Back to Basics A.A. meeting lists, and
answering calls for help from those in need.
Although the Back to Basics Foundation is a
service board that reports directly to those members of A.A. who
have had their lives changed as the result of the Back to Basics
A.A. Beginners meetings, we do not accept donations from any A.A.
meeting or group. Since our inception, it has been our
position that money collected during the Back to Basics A.A.
meetings should be distributed, as per the group conscience, to
the local Intergroup or Central Office, to the Area service
structure, and to the General Service Office in New York City.
However we do accept donations from individual
A.A. members who would like to assist us with our life-saving
efforts. If Back to Basics has made a difference in your
life and you have the financial resources to do so, we ask that
you consider supporting the Back to Basics Foundation.
We are working on the following life-saving projects:

Mission Statement - Who We
The Back to Basics Foundation is dedicated to saving the lives of alcoholics
by showing them the sheer simplicity of the "original" A.A. program
of recovery and by
guiding them through the Twelve Steps as they were taken by many of the A.A. pioneers
in the 1940's. During this period of time, the A.A. recovery rate from
alcoholism was 50-75%. We are seeing similar results today for
those who are willing to remain involved in the Back to Basics A. A. Beginners'
meetings for three to six months.
We accomplish our objective by coordinating the recovery efforts of the
numerous Back to Basics A.A. Beginners' meetings and groups, answering
questions as they arise, following up on Twelfth Step calls, and assisting
groups with their registration at the local, area, and General Service
Offices. We also conduct one day and weekend seminars
based on the Back to Basics A.A. program and distribute recovery literature
and other materials on the A.A. Beginners' meetings.
