Indirect Gift

This is an indirect route that should not be taken.

  • Do not solicit or accept a prohibited indirect gift from an outside source.
  • What’s an indirect gift? It’s something given — with your knowledge — to a parent, sibling, spouse, child or dependent relative because of your relationship to the person doing the giving. This includes gifts to a charitable organization based on your designation or recommendation.

When you don’t solicit or accept prohibited indirect gifts from an outside source, you strengthen the Postal Service’s reputation as being a transparent, fair, and honest organization.

And that’s smart business.
