NACHATROOM.ORG - 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.ORG - OK. How do I donate?

NACHATROOM.ORG 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.ORG.

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

Robert Grodevant
3824 Cedar Springs Rd, PMB 801-3616
Dallas, TX 75219

We would like to remind you one more time that NACHATROOM.ORG has no affliation whatsoever with NA World Services ("Narcotics Anonymous," "NA," "NA.ORG") -- we are a group of addicts gathered together independently trying to carry experience strength and hope to the addict still suffering without a solution. We have online meetings in the NA format and carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous here but we have no affliation with NA.

Donations to NACHATROOM.ORG are used to operate/maintain NACHATROOM.ORG

You can contribute to NA itself and our website will never know your identity. NA World Services will summarize a dollar amount provided by/from our group and nothing more on their annual reports. We'll find out about it the same way anyone else does -- through their annual reports.

Here's how you donate to NA World Services:

NA World Services
PO Box 9999
Van Nuys, CA 91409

You may indicate that it is a donation on behalf of group 3111205 NACHATROOM.ORG if you want our group to be credited for your donation on NA's annual reports. If you do not wish to do so, they will record your donation as an anonymous individual donation to NA.

NACHATROOM.ORG - We Do Have Expenses.

This website has approximately $440/yr in annual expenses as of 2/2019. We need YOU (and chairpersons!!) more than we need money but any amount is appreciated.

The group has a balance in PayPal of $35.51 as of 2/21/2019 and our bills are paid through December 2019.

  • Website Hosting $15.00 per month. Paid through February 2020.

  • Outstanding balance due for third party technical support: $0.00 *

  • YTD amount paid for third party technical support: $0.00

  • JFT_BOT/Chatroom Hosting $80.00 per year. Paid through December 2019. We added additional VPS hosts due to denial of service attacks in 12/2018 and 2/2019.

  • There is a fluctuating monthly service charge (less than $10 a month) for 3rd party security that we elect to not disclose publicly because it is a potential attack vector.

  • * The individual member who has "run" the site from 2016-present as a volunteer feels that the website and chat robot are stable enough to hand it off to the group, they will be relinquishing some of their responsibilities in 2019. When he is not available to fix/update things on a volunteer basis, maintenence and outages will be handled by a third party who will not be involved with the chatroom itself for $20.00/hr. Only Mike and Robin are authorized to agree to bill the group.

  • Registration for "nachatroom.org, .net, .com" and "nachat.us": $59.96/yr, all paid through 2024. We expect the ".com" registration to have increased by the year 2024.

  • Our last contribution to NA World Services was for $200.00 on 2/16/2019. We did not raise this amount through donations, this came directly from [a moderator]. This will be credited to NA Group 3111205 NACHATROOM.ORG

    The group will no longer pay Mibbit $99.00 a year to remove ads. Mibbit has several days-long outages every year, so we have moved to Kiwi which is free.

  • 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.ORG.
