Official Private Organizations vs. Unofficial Activities
Small unofficial activities include coffee funds, flower funds, sunshine funds, and other small operations are generally not considered official private organizations. However, if their current assets (which include cash, inventories, receivables, and investments) exceed a monthly average rate of $1,000 over a 3-month period, the activity/organization must become a PO, discontinue on-base operations, or reduce its current assets below the $1,000 threshold.
While unofficial activity organizations are required to become a registered official private organization administrator once the $1,000 threshold is met, they do have the option to become a PO beforehand, if they wish.
