More umbrella body chiefs publish expenses

The chief executives of NAVCA, Charity Finance Directors' Group and the Institute of Fundraising have now joined the NCVO's Stuart Etherington in providing their total expenses amounts, leaving Acevo as the only major sector umbrella body yet to do so. In 2008-9, NAVCA chief Kevin Curley claimed £9,088, split between £7,403 for travel and £1,685 subsistence, including accommodation, and misc. In 2007-8, he claimed £9351, split between £6,813 for travel and £2538 for subsistence and miscellaneous.

Umbrella chiefs sit tight on expense details

At least two umbrella body chief executives have declined to disclose any more detail of their expense claims beyond what they have already published, preferring to wait and see whether the new independent working group on expenses recommends that they should. This week, RNID chief executive Jackie Ballard (pictured) waded into the debate on publication of charity expenses by saying that simply providing totals without any indication of what the claims were for, was virtually meaningless.

Etherington provides expenses breakdown; Acevo refuses

NCVO chief executive Stuart Etherington claimed £11,997 in expenses last year and £10,394 the year before. Etherington was the first of the sector’s four main umbrella body chief executives to respond to Charity Finance’s request for publication of their last two years’ worth of expense claims. Acevo says it is yet to be persuaded of the value of doing so.

A merging of views

The news that three of the sector's big representative bodies have made a commitment to sharing office premises will come as little surprise to some.
