NACHATROOM.NET - Self Support/Contribution Information

"The [NA] groups themselves ought to be fully supported by the voluntary contributions of their own members. We think that each group should achieve that ideal; that any public solicitation of funds using the [NA] name is highly dangerous, whether by groups, clubs, hospitals or other outside agencies; that acceptance of large gifts from any source, or of contributions carrying any obligation whatever, is unwise. Then, too we view with much concern those [NA] treasuries which continue, beyond prudent reserves, to accumulate funds for no stated purpose. Experience has often warned us that nothing can so surely destroy our spiritual heritage as futile disputes over property, money, and authority."

NACHATROOM.NET - How do I donate?

NACHATROOM.NET does not accept contributions from non-members. Please do NOT donate if you do not identify as an addict, or you are NOT a regular chatter or trusted servant of NACHATROOM.NET.

Donate via PayPal:

NACHATROOM.NET - We Do Have Expenses.

Our operating expenses are less than $50.00 a month* (note from f_m: they're increasing due to $99/yr for Mibbit, $9.99/yr for a blacklist vendor, and about $74/yr for the SSL certificate on the "coffee clutch" demo - some charges are decreasing +/- 10/mo due to relocating servers to the same Amazon availability zone - will update.)

Everything you see here was written and is maintained by our home group members on a volunteer basis.

The servers are prepaid in rolling 2-3 year windows, whatever donations we receive help us catch up. We do not need or solicit large donation amounts from the group.

If you prefer to send a check or MO, please use the following address:

I want to quickly acknowledge that it isn't money or technology that keeps NACHATROOM.NET alive. It's the people who come in and greet and welcome newcomers, it's the people who make this their "home" and keep the chat going.

It's the hundreds to thousands of hours of effort shared by our core membership.

We opened our doors as nachatroom.org in 2006 and would like to thank untold numbers of you who came in here and sat down and listened to a newcomer and held that person's story in your hands with them.

We need you more than we need your money.

We host our own chat server. JFT_BOT was written by formerly_me and zephyr.

We are powered by numerous open source projects and free entry-level services.

Over 1,500 volunteer hours have been invested in development.

Our admin level staff spend anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000+ hours a year watching about a million lines of text scrolling every month. We are all volunteers.

You might not like the staff but we keep the lights on for you because we love you.

Email to [email protected] goes to Robin_Y.

Postal mail is scanned and delivered electronically to formerly_me.

Any two or three addicts gathered together may call themselves an N.A. group, provided that, as a group, they have no other affiliation. This website is not endorsed by any Narcotics Anonymous entity other than NACHATROOM.NET.
