That's the government for you; An epic cluster fuck you wind up paying through the nose for.
Really? Then I guess we shouldn't be worried about the NSA, since they are a government agency and obviously can't do anything right? Oh, and the Social Security Administration must be missing printing out and distributing I don't know how many truck loads of payments everyone month, since they are.... And don't forget how the US Post Office can't delivery over 99% of our mail correctly.
Every large agency, public or private, have issues and humans have a tendency to focus on issues, not successes. And a lot of public agencies have to air their mistakes in public eventually. Big government isn't pretty or perfect, but it also isn't pitiful either.
NOTE: The organizations themselves did not donate, rather the money came from the organizations' PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.
So it isn't University of California as the university donating the money, but the UoC employees, or one of their associated groups, doing so.
