Benefactors Who Have Substantially Supported Us

About January of 1990, we began the work of researching, analyzing, publishing, and disseminating the history of Alcoholics Anonymous and, later, of the Christian Recovery Movement. The effort would not have been successful without the following substantial benefactors who supported that work in many different ways.

We think it fair and proper to say that, in the language of A.A.’s Big Book, their real purpose and our real purpose was “to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.” Also, to be doers of the Word, and not hearers only.
