What do people make of this?
A study of the most recent accounts posted by the top 157 charities found only 46 gave this information yet the Charities Commission said that data on high earners would continue to be kept private.
Below is just a taste of some of the money that charities divert to pay directors/administrators;
- Save the Children £143,000 pa
- Oxfam £127,753 pa
- Barnardo’s £180,000-190,000 pa
- British Red Cross £170,000-180,000 pa
- RNLI £150,000-160,000 pa
- Age UK £190,000-200,000 pa
- RSPCA £130,000-139,000 pa
- NSPCC £173,000 pa
- RNIB £150,000-160,000 pa
- Alzheimer's Society £150,000-160,000 pa
UNICEF UK, Dogs Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Comic Relief / Sport Relief / Red Nose Day, WWF UK, Amnesty International UK… The list goes on and on with most of them getting paid in excess of £100,000 pa.
Would you still give to charity knowing that some of the money was paying for an executive lifestyle or is it a case of professionals that give a benefit to the charities in excess of their salaries?
