It is not permitted to use CAP fundraising as a means to make a personal profit. Appearing in uniform, as a CAP member in a “Go Fund Me” page, asking for money, can be considered in the context of CAP Fundraising. IMHO, this would be a good way to become a “former member”. There are better ways to solicit personal funds…

One of the more courageous members decided to inquire about this GAWG violation on CAPTalk this morning.

I’m trying to find the reg that addresses this. But all I’m seeing is wearing the uniform for political purposes. Is it legal for a member to use photos of CAP members in uniform to solicit donations for personal use? What is the reg that backs this up? I would appreciate any information on this!

The reply came back that it is Forbidden under CAPR173-4, 14 (e) and CAPM39-1,

Why would Greenwood’s Georgia Wing legal officer Jeff Chiu donate to this in such a public way?

01:05AM on 23 August: An AuxBeacon reader provided the following contribution from one of three possible regulations that could apply to this CAP use of Air Force style uniforms.

Lt. Col. Deb Schmid is in direct violation of CAP Regulation 1-1, Section 3 CAP’s Ethical Standards, Para b Avoid any Conflicts of Interest. No CAP member may use corporate property, information, or their position for improper personal gain or benefit.
