Private & Unofficial Organizations

Private Organizations (POs) are self-sustaining special interest groups, set up by individuals acting exclusively outside the scope of any official capacity as officers, employees, or agents of the Federal Government. POs can be great mediums for encouraging community involvement among like-minded individuals on base and can greatly enrich the lives of members of the DoD and their dependents. Because individuals running POs are often also members of or closely associated with the DoD, however, the possibility exists for actual or apparent conflicts of interest to sometimes arise between those dual roles.

To address this issue, Air Force-wide rules have been established to regulate and monitor the activities of base-associated POs. Such regulations and other useful information can be found below. Of particular importance are templates to request fundraisers (which you can do even as an unofficial organization) and information on how to make proper requests for off-base solicitations.
