How Many Nickels in a Dollar?

If trying to get the public to donate money to a charity is called a fundraiser, what is it called when a charity donates money to the public? A fundloser?

Sending out nickels is a lame fundraising idea, but it's sure nice to know my 2009 donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helped to pay for 500 letters like the one I just got with a real, genuine nickel inside. I thought my donation was going to be used for cancer research, but apparently not.
