Since we started the AsIAm journey, one of our core principles has been to strive to achieve the highest standards in transparency and good governance.
AsIAm was incorporated in November 2014 and received Charitable (CHY) Status from the Revenue Commissioners in January 2015. We produce annual audited accounts which are submitted to the relevant authorities and funders, and available for inspection on our website. In line with our aim of transparency, we have also decided to publish our full financial statements here and not just the minimum statutory requirement of the abridged version.
The AsIAm Board of Directors is working to come into full compliance with the Voluntary Governance Code for a “Type B” Organisation and the Guiding Principles for Fundraising. We are currently adopting the required policies and putting the appropriate procedures in place to be in full compliance with these optional codes in 2018.
Our Founder and CEO is not a member of the Board. He earns €36,000 per annum which is primarily paid by the SSNO Grant provided to us by Pobal. He also donates all further speaking fees he receives to AsIAm.
