Charity pay study 2019: the top earners, 26-50

Charities both large and small figure in the penultimate section of the top 100

Places 50 to 26 on Third Sector’s salary study 2019 feature a broad range of charities in terms of annual income.

The largest charity by income in this section of the list, Save the Children International, had an annual income of almost £1bn and paid its highest earner about £230,000 (both figures converted from US$), enough to rank in thirty-first place.

The smallest charity by income on the list, the Thrombosis Research Institute, paid its high earner at least as much – between £230,000 and £240,000 – but had an income of only £18.1m in its most recent accounts. It was in twenty-seventh place.

The institute was one of two charities that were included in the study despite their annual incomes not being high enough to feature in the top-150 list by income, because they are known to pay high wages.

The other is the grant-maker Caudwell Children, which will feature in the top-25 list, to be published on Monday.

Several major charities that earn a considerable amount of their incomes from providing public services are included in places 50 to 26, which encompasses salaries from between £180,000 and £190,000 up to £237,000.

These charities include Barnardo’s, Change, Grow, Live, Turning Point and the CITB.

Well-known charities including the National Trust and the RSPCA also appear in this section of the list. Both paid their highest earners between £190,000 and £200,000 in their most recent set of accounts.
