Our Finances

Message from Geraldine Lambert, Chairperson of Mid West Simon Community

Thank you for visiting our website.  We appreciate that you, like so many others, have concerns about how charities use their monies and I would like to take this opportunity to clarify how we operate at Mid West Simon Community.

Mid West Simon staff receive:

·    No salary top-ups

·    No six figure salaries

·    No bonus payments

·    No overtime payments

·    No un-vouched travel expenses

We have 4 paid staff; the current maximum salary is under €40,000 p.a. No pension contributions are paid for staff.  We do not have a CEO.  We rely significantly on volunteers and very much appreciate their contribution to our work.

All Board members act in a voluntary capacity and receive no fees or expenses

We are dependant on fundraising to provide our services and appreciate the very generous contributions of so many members of the public.

Every year our financial accounts are audited and lodged with the Companies Registration Office in accordance with Company Law.

On behalf of Mid West Simon Community I wish you a very Happy New Year and look forward to your continuing support in 2014.
