Before and during Christmas time, military units, family readiness groups and private garrison-approved organizations may want to organize bake sales or gift wraps to raise funds. However, there are some things to consider before hosting a fundraiser:
Who can hold fundraisers?
Military units, FRGs and private garrison-approved organizations.
How much in advance do I have to request approval?
At least 30 days in advance. The request has to be reviewed by the Legal Office, and this takes time.
What do I need to do?
Request the form with Rick Iglesias, civilian misconduct actions officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Fill out the form, and make sure the event location signs it off. Then send it back to Iglesias.
Are there exceptions to this procedure?
Yes, military units and FRGs that plan the fundraiser in their own area don’t have to ask for approval from the garrison. Their commander can approve the request.
