|How are the funds distributed to the
Contributions made by state agency employees are
distributed by the State Comptroller to participating
federations, who then send the funds along to their members.
Each university distributes funds to federations through its own
payroll system. At the local level, the Local Campaign Manager
distributes the funds the same way. However, because it is almost
impossible to account for donations lost through such things as
an employee leaving or transferring, a percentage method is used
to distribute funds. At the end of each year's campaign, the
percent of funds pledged to each charity is calculated. Each
charity then receives that percentage of what is eventually
collected. Undesignated one-time gift pledges are shared with all
participating charities using the same percentage. Each charity
also pays its share of the cost of running the campaign (printed
materials, etc.) based upon the same percentage.
