Contribute to IDAA

IDAA seeks your help to carry its message! Since its inception, the IDAA Central Office has been supported by a portion of the registration fees from the annual meeting. The mission to carry the message of recovery to healthcare professionals in recovery is seen in large part in our providing scholarships to members and their families who are having financial hardships.

Contributions are gratefully accepted to the following IDAA Funds:

IDAA OPERATING ACCOUNT (Annual Member Contribution) - Each IDAA member is asked to pay an annual contribution amount of $50. This covers families as well. Anyone with financial hardships may request a waiver by contacting the IDAA Executive Director. The revenue collected is used to support our day to day operations and to increase the IDAA Scholarship Fund (UBS)

GENERAL FUND - This fund supports Central Office daily operations under the direction of the Executive Director. The Central Office mission is to:

  • Maintain the confidential database of all members of IDAA.
  • Serve as a central contact for health care professionals and their families to find immediate help through other members in recovery.
  • Maintain the web site.
  • Promote outreach services to health care disciplines.
  • Provide annual meeting registration.
  • Accept donations from the general membership.

SCHOLARSHIPS - Contributions to this fund are used entirely by the current annual meeting committee to provide scholarship aid for new, early-in-sobriety, members to attend their first IDAA meeting. The fund is also used to help our longer-sober AA, Al-Anon members, and families, who suffer occasional financial hurdles, attend IDAA.

IDAA SCHOLARSHIP FUND (UBS) - The fund, originally established in 1987 in memory of Luke Reed, has been used to memorialize many other members and their families. Donations to the fund are held by the financial advising group, UBS, with the understanding that the principle in the account will not be withdrawn. As the account grows there will be adequate interest income to provide for member and their family scholarship expenses encored each year at our annual meeting.

There is now a vehicle in place to allow individuals to put in their wills a bequest for IDAA. For information on this contact the Central Office.

IDAA is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Your information will be accessible only by the IDAA Central Office. Credit card information will not be retained. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards.

We greatly appreciate your help. After your donation has been processed, you will be sent a confirmation by email. If you would prefer to be contacted in some other way, please indicate this in the "comments" box below.
