Private Organization Law and Legal Definition

Private organization refers to any person, partnership, corporation, association or agency which is not a public body that is operated for profit. It can be a self-sustaining, non-federal entity, constituted or established and operating on Federal property, by individuals acting outside any official capacity in the federal Government.

The following is an example of a case law on private organization:

A private organization is an establishment which maintains selective members, is operated by the membership, does not provide food or lodging for pay to anyone who is not a member or a member's guest and is not profit oriented.
