Methods of Payment to Region 9

Region 9 countries are wonderfully diverse. The easiest ways to make your group’s 7th Tradition contribution to Region 9 directly are given below.

If you are unable to send funds directly (in GBP) electronically or without fees, then you can often forward contributions to R9 through your Intergroup/National/Language Service Board who will collate it with other groups’ contributions before sending on to us at Region 9. Check with your Service Body first to ensure they are able to do this for your group.

You may also send contributions intended for WSO through Region 9. If your contribution, or a portion of your contribution, is intended for WSO – please make clear the amount to be forwarded to WSO on your group’s behalf.  Kindly note, that R9 transfers funds to WSO once a year, so your intended contribution WILL reach WSO, but it may take some time.

When sending your contribution to Region 9 – please send an email to the Region 9 treasurer & banker ( & – giving the details of your group, and your group’s contribution. The R9 Treasurer will send you a receipt.

The confirmation email to the Treasurer and Banker should include the following information:

  • Amount of contribution
  • Distribution of amount between R9 and WSO (if necessary)
  • Name and number of your group or service body
