A budget is a fixed number of GiveAway Points that Team Leads or regular employees can use each month for recognition or (in the case of the Team Leads) as campaign awards.

If you have grouped your employees into teams and assigned certain managers as Team Leads, then those managers require a GiveAway Points budget in order to award points to their staff for achieving the goals of any campaigns they create for them.
