Remuneration of the Statutory Director

In line with War Child’s low-cost policy, the Board, in consultation with the Statutory Director, has set the director’s remuneration package well below the Dutch Fundraising Institutions Association (VFI) guidelines for management salaries in charitable organisations (Adviesregeling Beloning Directeuren van Goede Doelen), and the code of governance for charitable organisations (Code Wijffels).


In 2013, War Child’s director received a gross salary of € 88,353, which is well below the VFI guideline of € 140,046 for one FTE over twelve months, corresponding to War Child’s VFI score of 505 points. In line with the VFI guidelines, remuneration comprises the gross salary, holiday allowance, thirteenth month, and end of year benefits, if applicable. War Child’s Statutory Director, Bernard Uyttendaele, has no relevant additional functions.

Board expenses

Board members work on a voluntary basis but are entitled to reimbursement of costs, which occurs rarely. In 2013, War Child paid the costs for a security training, which board members incurred in connection with their duties to the board and organisation. These costs amounted to € 500.
