Question: I keep hearing about the Birthday Plan. What is it?
Answer: The 1955 General Service Conference approved the Birthday Plan, under which some members of the Fellowship send a dollar a year for each year of sobriety they have in A.A. Others use a figure of $3.65, a penny a day, for each year. Some give more, but the amount cannot exceed $3,000 for any year.
