I agree. But how would we be able to set it up without causing problems? If
we started making money off selling it, maybe some companies would fell less
motivated to donate to us, thus making us dependent upon our own revenue.

If there is a good way to do it though I am all for it. Keeping monthly postings 
of our financial status, where the money is going etc. Maybe we could vote
on what it would be used for.
