The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organization focused on college sports in the US. With 1,100 member colleges and universities in 102 athletic conferences across the country that participate in 90 championships in 24 sports in 3 divisions, the NCAA is a powerful and well financed organization.
There are 16 independent members of the governing party although 18 board members are listed on the Form 990 (probably due to timing differences). 14 of the 18 (78%) board members are male while 4 of the 14 (22%) are female.
The NCAA raised about $1.1 billion in 2018 – most of which came from from television rights (83%) and championships/National Invitation Tournament (13% of revenue). Expenses were $1 billion with the 3 largest expense scholarships and grants ($635 million), championship expenses ($145 million), and compensation ($78 million). Read more
