no. 380 – Office Etiquette

In a group gift, it is appropriate to contribute what one can and what one feels is appropriate for the occasion.

It is, however, inappropriate for anyone to divulge with anyone else what each person did contribute. That not only makes it difficult for the recipient to make out a Thank You card ("Thank You, Bob, for your 5% contribution; and you Bill, for your 10%.), but it sets a rather unpleasant tone in the office for future group gifts.

See here for more on Group Gifting Etiquette. Most notably, the last question/answer.
