Membership & Donations

The Westside Club is a private non-profit organization formed to primarily to provide a space where groups devoted to the recovery of alcoholics and drug addicts can meet. While many of the meetings held at the club are Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings, the Westside Club itself is not AA. Rather, the club provides space for AA and other groups, thereby facilitating recovery from alcoholism and drug addiction.

In order to function, the Westside Club naturally has expenses. These expenses include rent, payroll, literature, snack bar supplies, and miscellaneous items. Obviously, the club must take in funds adequate to cover these expenses. The club’s revenues essentially come from the following sources:

  • Membership dues
  • Donations
  • Meetings
  • Fund raising events
  • Snack bar and other sales

Member’s of the Westside Club help make it possible to provide space, events and fellowship for so many people in recovery. By becoming a member and renewing your membership annually, you are engaging in service work. You are practicing the 12th Step by helping to carry the message to others in recovery and are freely giving back some of what you been so freely given. In addition, members receive a copy of the newsletter, are free to attend meetings of the House Committee, and can vote in Club elections.

The Club has several membership tiers. Membership dues are $125.00 per year payable in advance — but you can also join at a higher tier to support the club:

  • $125 Individual
  • $250 Family
  • $300 Friend
  • $350 Family
  • $600 Benefactor
  • $1,200 Patron
  • $2,400 Sponsor
  • $50 Senior/Student
