OA has no dues or fees for membership. Our program is open to all who have a desire to stop eating compulsively, regardless of personal financial condition. OA is self-supporting through member contributions. Most groups “pass the basket” at meetings to cover expenses. People give what they can when they can. OA does not solicit or accept outside contributions.
Literature sales provide additional funds to support OA’s expenses. The money is used for OA’s primary purpose to carry the message of recovery that is possible through the Twelve Steps of Overeaters Anonymous.
