"Non-profit" can mean a lot of things. Most people confuse "non-profit" with
403C (I think) which means that contributions to that entity are
tax-deductible. You can also have a "non-profit" that does not meet those
You also have to deal with various legal matters, like what happens to the
corporations assets if it disolves, I believe there is some requirement that
contributed funds go someplace in keeping with the intent of the
contributors. All these things have to be worked out, and I suspect the Myth
developers are getting an education in matters they never had to deal with
previously, ultimately to the benefit of us all.
None of which matters here. If I receive something of value to me I expect to
pay for it in some way. To not do so is to be a leech, one of the lower forms
of life on earth.
