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 - OK. 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.
Money from any outside source will be rejected and returned to the sender.
The group may develop a Prudent Reserve up to 12 months of anticipated operating expenses ($1131.84). But lol, we don't have one right now.
Amounts received in excess of posted invoices and the Prudent Reserve will be sent to NA World Services, since we are not centralized or claimed by any area or intergroup.
If you prefer to send a check or MO, please use the following address:
NAChatroom.net, c/o Robert G.
Letters are scanned to a PDF and e-mailed to Robert. Please only send letters.

NACHATROOM.NET - We Do Have Expenses.
This website has monthly expenses ranging from $30 to $123 a month. We need YOU (and chairpersons!!) more than we need money, we have been "in the red" on self-support since day one but we WILL keep the lights on for you. There are NO dues or fees for membership.
Here are the basics that we pre-pay for 1-3 (or more) years at a time:
Website Hosting and SSL certificate from Godaddy: $321.09/ per 36mo* Paid through 7/2019. This will be unnecessary (thanks Amazon!) and not be renewed in 2019.
Registration for "nachatroom.org, .net, .com" and "nachat.us": $59.96/yr, all paid through 2024.
Remove Ads from Mibbit: $99.00/yr* Paid through 6/2017.
Here are the monthly expenses.
Our servers are on a promotional rate with Amazon.com and have incurred the following charges:
Our promotional rate with Amazon expires in February 2017 and monthly bills are estimated to be: $85.53 - 94.32/mo.
We have the following upcoming expenditures coming up:
Increased monthly operating expenses of $85.53 - $94.32 effective February 2017.
We may need to subscribe to getipintel.net (this is what detects tor/proxy/etc) commercially at $20-$30 a month. We get 300-500 visitors a day and are very nearly at the limit of free queries per day.
Mibbit ad removal/renewal of $99.00 in 6/2017. This license only removes ads for 25 chatters and sometimes we have 40-50 at a meeting. We may renew at the "50 user" tier for $250.00/yr.
NACHATROOM.NET - Bills and Statements
Paypal statements will start being posted in February 2017.
Updating the website is a chore, and this report fell into neglect due to a lack of donations in 2016.
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.
