The most recent data for The Candie's Foundation that's posted online by research firm GuideStar shows compensation at $262,500 for the now-20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee.

According to the tax forum, the organization delivered&nbsp a total of $35,000 in grants, supporting the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center in New York ($25,000) and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy ($10,000).  

Bristol Palin was 18 when she was appointed as a teen ambassador for the New York-based foundation in 2009, months after giving birth to son, Tripp. She and the 2-year-old boy's father are no longer together.

Palin family attorney John Tiemessen and foundation officials did not immediately return calls for comment.

Palin is still listed as an ambassador on the foundation's website. The blog Palingates first reported the compensation figure.

Palin, who recently bought a home in Arizona, also competed last year in "Dancing With the Stars" last fall and made it into the finals.
