The RDEB Intersangha is an organization dedicated to supporting the health of in-person and online sanghas in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The intersangha is made up of some elected officers as well as all members of East Bay Recovery meetings who are encouraged to participate in, contribute to and support Intersangha efforts.
MISSION OF THE INTERSANGHA

MONTHLY INTERSANGHA MEETING
WEDNESDAY (MONTHLY) • ONLINE ONLY
INTERSANGHA TREASURY ACTIVITIES
Some, but not all meetings located in the East Bay, may opt to participate in the Intersangha pooled treasury model. For meetings who participate, this is how it works:
Dana- Cash and Venmo donations from meetings whose expenses are paid by the Intersangha treasury go to the pooled account.
Meeting Expenses- The pooled account is used to pay for the individual meeting expenses, such as facilities rent, zoom accounts and books.
Sangha Independent Treasury
Some meetings in the East Bay may opt to maintain their own treasury account. In this case, the meeting will deposit dana into their own account and the meeting is responsible for covering their own meeting expenses
Meetings with an independent treasury account are encouraged, but not required to, support Intersangha activites or events financially via ongoing or one-time contributions
Dana in excess of the meeting expenses required for the Pooled Treasury sanghas, is used for other Intersangha activities such as: Website maintenance, social and educational events, literature and flyers, outreach activities.
Oversight and Recordkeeping
The Intersangha Treasurer provides a monthly accounting of dana, expenses and bank account balances at the monthly Intersangha meeting. All are invited to attend the meeting to review the information. New expenditures are also voted upon at the monthly Intersangha meeting.
Participation of new sanghas in the Pooled Treasury account is approved via Intersangha vote, and ongoing participation is subject to review and vote from time to time.
