Everything in your application is “fair game.” If you listed it, be prepared to talk about it during an interview. Admissions committee members have been known to call the “contact person” whom you list in your experiences. Be sure that you have done what you say you have done. If you are in the process of founding an organization, say that. Do not say that you already founded it, only to have a member of the admissions committee check with your undergraduate college and find that the organization does not yet exist.
