Private & Unofficial Organizations

A Private Organization (PO) is a self-sustaining special interest group; set up by people acting exclusively outside the scope of any official capacity they may have in the federal government. POs are not Federal entities and are not to be treated as such. PO assets are monies and property in a PO or in its custody. These come from donations, dues, payments, or other receipts and may not be misused or combined with NAFI assets. Unofficial activities with limited assets (under $1,000) are exempted from establishing a formal PO. A PO should make a positive contribution in terms of morale or service to the installation personnel. Membership eligibility should be limited primarily to members of the DOD family. These groups can operate on Fairchild AFB with the permission of the Mission Support Group Commander (MSG). 92 Force Support Squadron is located at 7 W Arnold in Bldg 2040. Oversight authority has been delegated to this squadron to ensure that PO’s comply with Air Force Instruction (AFI) 34-223.

Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program

Your NAF Health Benefits Program

The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) provides long term care insurance for its enrollees, who are Federal and U.S. Postal Service employees and annuitants, active and retired members of the uniformed services, and their qualified relatives.

General Information

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.

We look forward to working with you and your organization! If you have any questions pertaining to POs, unofficial organizations, or anything you see below, please contact the Resource Management at (509) 247-2545.

Private Organizations Program, 13 Dec 2018, AFI 36-3101, Fundraising, 9 Oct 2018, and the Joint Ethics Regulation (JER), DoD 5500.07-R, Section 3-210, govern UA fundraising activities in the Air Force.

New Private Organizations are required to submit the following to us for PO Approval.

Private Organizations

There are two types of private organizations:

INFORMAL: This type does not need MSG Commander approval. Maintains less than $1,000 monthly average over a 3-month period and the operation is very “informal”.

FORMAL: Requires MSG Commander approval, must fulfill all AFI 34-223 requirements, and maintains more than $1000, a monthly average over a 3 month period.

Unofficial Organizations & Requests

Unofficial Organizations can be small operations/activities such as booster clubs, coffee, and flower funds.

Snack bars within break areas are allowed. Inventory must be kept at less than $1,000 and proceeds can only go to sustain the snack bar. They are not open to the public and must be registered as an unofficial activity.

Fundraising campaigns within the Air force come in two official forms: (CFC and AFAF) and 1 official food drive (Feds Feeding Families). Other than these three events, all fundraising and drives on base can only be conducted by private or unofficial organizations that are in good standing.
