I understand what you're getting at, and there is no "predetermined rule". It's totally up to the TD how to distribute added cash. If the GMs personally raised the funds, I wouldn't have too much of a problem giving them a higher percentage of the added cash, but yes, all other things being equal, the added cash should go proportionately to the divisions that pay the highest entry.
I've seen tournaments that cater to women (or older people or whatever) so I have no problem if they advertise up front that they are going to give a disproportionate amount to those divisions. Just be fair and open up-front and tell us how the cash will be distributed.
