Ross: More charities using donations to top up wages

Ross: More charities using donations to top up wages

It has been claimed that there are more charities using fundraising money to top up the salaries of senior staff.

It emerged yesterday that the Central Remedial Clinic used money raised by the Friends and Supporters of the Remedial Clinic to top up salaries.

The organisation's then Chief Executive Paul Kiely was paid a salary of almost €107,000 which was supplemented by the clinic with €136,000.

Independent TD Shane Ross of the Public Accounts Committee says more charities are likely to admit to doing the same thing, and it will have a very damaging effect.

He has called for resignations from the CRC Board.
