AR 1-10: Fundraising Within the Department of the Army


Army Regulation 1-10 | Administration Fundraising Within the Department of the Army | Effective Jan. 16, 2023

1–1. Purpose: This regulation prescribes general policy for administering all fundraising activities within the Department of the Army. Also, it specifically defines policy, procedures, and responsibilities for fundraising in support of the Combined Federal Campaign and complies with public law and guidance from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Defense.

1–8. Authorized non-Combined Federal Campaign fundraising: Apart from fundraising or U.S. Office of Personnel Management approved fundraising for an emergency or disaster appeal, the Army Emergency Relief annual campaign is the only fundraising the Army may conduct Armywide. Fundraising in support of AER must be conducted in accordance with AR 930–4 and the general provisions of this regulation.

1–12. Official endorsements: DA Servicemembers and DA civilians may endorse in their official capacities only CFC fundraising; fundraising specifically approved by the Director, OPM for an emergency or disaster appeal; fundraising for the AER annual campaign; and local fundraising on behalf of welfare funds for organizations composed primarily of Army personnel or their Family members, including Army morale, welfare, and recreation nonappropriated fund activities. Endorsements may include support for the fundraising effort by performing the usual activities associated with a campaign kickoff at public appearances or the use of the official’s name, title, and position in memorandums, employee newsletters, or other routine communications to promote the fundraising. DA officials may not endorse other local fundraising authorized under the provisions of AR 210–22 on behalf of particular private organizations.

1–13. Soliciting monetary pledges on the job: Only CFC and AER may solicit on the job for a monetary contribution or a pledge of a monetary contribution. CFC contributions may be made in the form of payroll allotments, credit/debit cards, checks, or echecks. Under certain limited circumstances and only when approved by the Director, OPM, government-wide emergency appeals for disaster relief may be authorized. An example of a government-wide appeal is CFC Special Solicitation for COVID–19 Victims.
