Only 50 per cent of the public think charity chiefs should be paid, says nfpSynergy report
A new survey has found that just less than half of those surveyed thought charity chief executives should be paid, with about a quarter believing they should not and the rest unsure.
A nationally representative poll of 1,000 people carried out by the consultancy nfpSynergy in January found that 48 per cent of respondents thought charity chief should probably or definitely be paid, while 26 per cent said they should probably or definitely not be paid, with the rest not sure.
Fifty per cent of respondents said they thought street fundraisers who signed people up to direct debits should not be paid.
Fifty-three per cent of respondents said charity shop workers should not be paid – the same proportion who said that charity trustees should not be remunerated for their efforts.
