Private Organizations (PO) are self-sustaining special interest groups, set up by people acting exclusively outside the scope of any official capacity as officers, employees, or agents of the Federal Government. POs are not Federal entities and are not to be treated as such.
They operate on military installations with the written consent of the installation commander. Information concerning establishing and operating a PO, the annual oversight requirements, fundraising limitations and more can be found in AFI 34-223.
The information has been prepared for you as an aid while operating as a Private Organization. If you have any questions, please give us a call.
