Tradition Six

Our Family Groups ought never endorse, finance or lend our name to any outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary spiritual aim. Although a separate entity, we should always co-operate with Alcoholics Anonymous.

This Tradition, however, should never be interpreted as an attempt to hold us back from providing the comfort and aid we exist to offer, or from carrying the Al‑Anon message to those who need it. Activities such as sponsoring an Alateen function or making Al‑Anon literature available to the public are appropriate because they support our primary purpose. Instead, the Sixth Tradition urges us to avoid activities or relationships that are potentially harmful—involvements that could interfere with our ability to help families and friends of alcoholics.
