Of the 2.5% companies contribute:  1% goes to your Local Leaders, .5% goes to Mentors in your program (with their individual portion of this .5% dependent on their participation and ratings from Founders), and 1% goes to FI HQ.  60% of the Equity Collective distributions go back to your local community.  These are your stakeholders in your agreement.

Individual checks are sent to all stakeholders associated with that company's distribution.
