Finances and Governance

Finances / Salaries

Very simply, Educate Together opens and supports schools. Educate Together is a registered charity. We receive a core grant from the state which covers 10% of our operating costs, so we must generate funds from other sources to continue to do the work that we do.

To see how Educate Together puts funds to use, you can also view our most recent Annual Report and Audited Accounts

The maximum salary in Educate Together is the CEO’s, which is currently set at €69,120 per annum, and there are no bonuses paid. 

No Educate Together director receives any remuneration whatsoever from the company. All carry out their roles in a voluntary capacity.

Educate Together has only one fully State funded position. This is a seconded post from the Department of Education, awarded in September 2013. No additional remuneration is provided for this post out of Educate Together funds.

The Educate Together board, on behalf of the member schools of the company and its fundraisers and supporters, is deeply grateful to its staff who perform to the highest standards and commitment.
