Remuneration of the Executive Director

Following War Child’s stringent low-cost policy, remuneration is set below the guidelines of the Dutch Fundraising Institutions Association (VFI) for management salaries of charitable organisations (Adviesregeling Beloning Directeuren van Goede Doelen), and the code of governance for charitable organisations (Code Wijffels). Management remuneration and additional benefits are determined annually by the Board of Trustees/Remuneration Committee on the basis of performance evaluations.

The Board of Trustees, in consultation with the executive director, has chosen a yearly director's remuneration package well under the VFI scheme. In 2012 War Child had three succeeding directors. Mark Vogt was executive director until February 22, and War Child welcomed its new executive director Bernard Uyttendaele on June 1, 2012. In the period in between, War Child employee Hendrik van Gent served as interim executive director. The actual remuneration in 2012 of the successive directors was: € 83,336. This amount consists of € 12,823 for Mark Vogt (1.8 months), € 23,133 for Hendrik van Gent (3.2 months) and € 47,380 for Bernard Uyttendaele (7 months).


The total remuneration of € 83,336 (1 FTE 12 months) for the executive director position is well below the VFI guideline of € 140,046 (1 FTE 12 months, corresponding to War Child’s VFI score of 505 points). In line with the VFI guidelines the amount of remuneration comprises the gross salary, holiday allowance, 13th month, and end of year benefits, if applicable. In the annual account, the amount and composition of management remuneration are reported. War Child director Bernard Uyttendaele has no relevant additional functions.
