Gold Coin Donations. Primarily referring to the act of funding (for charity or otherwise) through voluntary collections from employees by any company, corporate or government institution – and specifically referring to collections that have not originated independently from employees and subsequently garnered organisational support.
Institutions are in a far better financial position than their Employees, and should they [the institution] wish to donate, they should do so from their profits, not from their employee’s salaries.
Not only do they collect from their employees, they seek the recognition for the act of donating. It’s a win-win scenario for them, and not a behaviour to be proud of.
