Member Contribution Limits Increased to US$7,500

Check for $7,500.00

World Service Business Conference 2023 delegates recently voted to increase member contribution limits from US$5,000 to $7,500. Members can now contribute up to $7,500 per year for each of the following purposes:

  • OA General Fund (unrestricted contributions)
  • Delegate Support Fund
  • Professional Exhibits Fund
  • Translation Assistance Fund
  • In memoriam of a deceased OA member

From the revised Statement on Individual Member Donations to the OA World Service Office:

“A member may contribute up to US$7,500 per year to the general fund, up to US$7,500 per year to any special fund, and up to US$7,500 per year to honor the memory of a deceased member.” (The policy that “OA, Inc. may accept a bequest from the will of a deceased member… [with] no limit” remains unchanged.) (Business Conference Policy Manual, 2013 [amended 2023])

The new contribution limit increases are now reflected in the following OA literature:
