Limitations On Gifts From Subordinates

Air Force Protocol
from 'Til Wheels are Up'


Employees and military members generally may not:

  • Directly or indirectly give a gift to or make a donation for a gift for an official superior,
  • Solicit a contribution from another employee or member for a gift to his own or the other employee's or member's official superior, or
  • Directly or indirectly accept a gift from a subordinate employee or member, unless:
    • The employees/members are not in a subordinate-superior relationship; and,
    • A personal relationship between the employees or members justifies the gift
  • Superiors may accept gifts from subordinates on special, infrequent occasions, such as:
    • Occasions of personal significance, such as marriage
    • Occasions that terminate a superior-subordinate relationship, such as retirement or transfer
  • Superiors may not accept a gift from a donating group if the market value exceeds $300.00
    • Donating group is not defined
    • Multiple donating groups are possible, but may not be combined to purchase a gift that exceeds $300.00
  • Individuals may not be asked to contribute more than $10 towards a group gift, but may choose to contribute more
