In keeping with our mission: To operate a financial self-support club that provides a sober and supportive environment for individuals and families recovering from any addiction(s) through various 12-step programs. East Side Alano Club of Madison attempts to maintain this facility through membership dues, donations from attendees at 12-step meetings and donations from people using our facility. We also sponsor a variety of events and activities to help finance the operation of this facility.

Some of our past projects include:

  • 2016 Replacement of Flat Roof for $25,617.69
  • 2017 Replacement of Back Stoop for $32,326.53
  • 2017 Replacement of Parking Lot for $157,940.00
  • 2018/2019 Replacement of all Windows in the Facility for $37,841.05
  • 2020 Replacement of two New Boilers for $19,985.00

These were not small ticket items. We currently have a remaining mortgage balance of about $74,000.

Maintaining our facility will require continuing maintenance and let’s be honest-it takes money. Your help is needed now more than ever due to the effects of the pandemic and fewer people attending in-person meetings. However, this is changing and continuing to improve which is hopeful.

Your donations are tax deductible and much appreciated. When people say they are grateful to have a place to come to, all of this makes it very worthwhile.

Membership dues payment options are in the Membership Tab.

Otherwise, you may designate your donations as follows:

Please be generous. Our facility and the 12 step meetings we house have saved the lives of countless people and their families during its 40+ years of operation. Many people celebrate their years of sobriety or attending a 12-step meeting with a donation. Others honor or remember a family member or friend who has passed on with a gift to the Club.

All donations to the East Side Alano Club are tax deductible as mentioned above. If you would prefer to donate in person, see the caretaker on lower level. You may also make a donation by check. Checks should be designated and sent to:
