How can anyone define a not-for-profit business if that's not one?
You want to raise enough money to break-even, so aim just higher.
That activity of DUS is a business.
The other part, holding money for debian, does get a few donations.
DUS as a whole is more than just that, though.

Wasn't the stand in ".org village sponsored by UKLINUX.NET" for
a few years now? Thanks to them for their generous sponsorship.
It's a big help to a lot of projects and some of the
most interesting exhibits. http://www.linuxexpo.org.uk/
