What is a Private Organization

  • 1.1. 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 installation personnel. Membership eligibility should be limited primarily to members of the DOD family. These groups can operate on Maxwell AFB with permission of the Mission Support Group Commander (MSG). 42 Force Support Squadron is located in Bldg 804, second floor. Oversight authority has been delegated to this squadron to ensure that PO’s comply with Air Force Instruction (AFI) 34-223.

  • To conduct any type of fund-raiser on Maxwell AFB, the organization conducting the fundraiser must be a current approved PO and must request approval through 6 Force Support Squadron to the Mission Support Group Commander.

  • A PO is set up and operated to fulfill the needs and interests of Department of Defense (DOD) families.  Its members must be affiliated with DOD (Active Duty, Retirees or Civilians).
There are two types of POs

  • 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, monthly average over a 3 month period.
