Non-profits are required to file such forms annually. I hadn't looked at the Razorback Foundation's filing in a while. They don't tell you a lot. The return, for the 2009 tax year, a period ending June 30, 2010 and filed in February 2011, for example, shows the organization raised about $13 million that year and sent along almost $10 million to Razorback athletics. It lists payments to top officers — total compensation of about $173,000 to President Harold Horton; $118,000 to associate director Norm DeBriyn; almost $113,000 to associate director Sean Rochelle, and $66,000 to financial officer Jackie Rollins.
The report also lists compensation of about $237,000 to former president Chuck Dicus and these payments to "independent contractors" — $387,000 to J. Frank Broyles, the retired UA athletic director, and $200,000 to Bobby Petrino, then football coach, both for "speaking engagements."
The usual sources of these documents don't show a document on file yet for period ending June 30, 2011. I have asked if it's otherwise available yet.
