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.
