On behalf of U.S. Army Garrison (USAG) Hawaii Soldiers and Families, the Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (Family and MWR) Directorate sincerely appreciates the phenomenal outpouring of community support over the years, and particularly so since 9/11 and the military's full engagement in the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT).

Literally, on a daily basis, we are asked:

  • “How can we give?”
  • “Who can we give to?”
  • “If we want to send items to the troops, how can that be done?”

Giving to USAG Hawaii’s Soldiers and their families is easy.  And as a company, organization, or as an individual, you have many options.  We want to emphasize that whatever option you choose, we will help facilitate the process - - but ultimately it is ENTIRELY your choice.

Here are some of the basics

The major differences between Sponsorship and a Donation are:

  • Sponsorship: A business, organization, or individuals  who provide direct support for Family and MWR events/programs can receive recognition and conduct on-site advertising during the sponsored event or program.
  • Donation: Donors may not be officially recognized through the media or publicity events.  A donation must be anonymous and offered unconditionally.  The Department of the Army is prohibited from making public announcement of the gifts received (Army Regulation 1-101 para 7 (4) and (5).
  • Sponsorship: A sponsor may choose any Family and MWR program they wish to support.  The sponsor chooses which program to support with the stipulation that only MWR programs as defined in Army Regulation (AR) 215-1 may solicit and accept sponsorship.
  • Donation: The installation Commander, not the donor, decides which program receives the gifts, AR 1-101 para 7 b).

If you, your business, or organization would like to invest in the Army Family and MWR Commercial  Sponsorship Program, please contact us.

Donations

All offers of gifts or donations must be made in writing.  This is so they may receive the appropriate (required!) legal review, and a written approval of acceptance.

There are five basic types of gifts or donation offers the Army is most often asked about.  They are:

  1. Gifts or donations to Army Family and Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (Family and MWR) Programs.  The Garrison Commander or the garrison Family and MWR Director may accept unconditional gifts of any amount up to $50,000.  The authority may not be further delegated.  Garrison Commanders can accept up to $100,000.  IMCOM Region Directors, the Commanding General, Deputy Commanding General or the FMWR Commander may accept gifts of up to $250,000.  Any gifts over that amount require the Secretary of the Army’s approval.
  2. Gifts or donations for select Army Community Services Family Programs, Family Readiness Groups, or the Soldier and Family Assistance Center. Subject to the same guidelines as Family and MWR programs listed above.
    • The FRG Supplemental Mission Account – Established to accept unsolicited donations or gifts made to the Army and intended for FRG or military family support.
    • ACS’s Supplemental Mission Overall Program account.  Established to accept unsolicited donations or gifts intended for ACS programs.  Another ACS Supplemental Mission Account for AFAP, AFTB, and IVS also exists; however, an exception to ACS policy for obtaining commercial sponsorship was made for these programs exclusively.  Companies may now sponsor these programs and obtain advertising in exchange for their support.
  3. Gifts or donations intended for direct distribution to soldiers.
    • Limited to good and services, i.e. Soldier comfort kits or items, phone cards, food (preferable non-perishable, holiday packages, and electronic devices.
    • No dollar limit is placed on these sorts of goods offered.
    • Cash to Soldiers is not authorized.
    • Donor is usually required to pay transportation costs for goods offered.
    • The senior mission commander and Garrison Commander have been delegated the authority to accept this category of gift.
  4. Gifts or donations offered to Soldier Family Assistance Center, which in turn supports Wounded Warriors or their Families
    • Applies to active duty service members and DoD employees who incurred illnesses/injuries as a result of armed conflict or other circumstance while on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, and their families.
    • Wounded Warriors and families may not solicit donations.
    • Wounded Warriors and families offered unsolicited donations/gifts should talk with an Ethics Counselor to ensure that it is authorized.
  5. Gifts or donations offered directly to the Department of the Army.  Established so that the Secretary of the Army can accept gift offers over $1K and for gifts to the Fisher Houses.  This includes real or personal property, or gifts with monetary value. Subject to AR 1-100.

The USAG Hawaii's Family and MWR Directorate is committed to facilitate the gift giving process, or if you choose, Commercial Sponsorship of Family and MWR programs.  We will help you through the process, and while giving is not difficult, there are certain parameters that have to be followed - - such as the requirement for a written offer of donation, acceptance of the offer, and receiving of appropriate legal review.  Thank you for your interest in supporting Soldiers and families at Garrison Hawaii.

As defined by AR 210-22 and DoDI 1000.15, a Private Organization (PO) is a self-sustaining, non-federal entity constituted or established and operated by individuals acting outside any official capacity as officers, employee, or agents of the Federal Government or its instrumentalities. It may be incorporated or unincorporated. It may operate on or off DA installations; however, to operate on U.S. Army Garrison (USAG-HI), the private organization must have the written consent of the Installation Commander.

At USAG-HI, the Garrison Commander has designated the approval authority and management of the PO program to the Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR). Permission to operate on the installation is granted for a period of 2 years, unless cancelled by either party. Approval automatically expires 2 years from the date of the last approval unless re validated. POs must request re validation no less than 90 days prior to the expiration of their current permit.
