The simple answer to that is that we are not ( the CentOS Project ) in a 
place where we can take on financial donations. Which essentially boils 
down to the fact that if you were to contribute some money as a 
financial donation, it would not get used for anything constructive  and 
will not goto the project, it would goto one person - who may or may not 
even be doing any regular work in the project.

so your assumption on this is actually wrong: financial donations are 
actively refused at this time. If either you or anyone else are 
contributing funds using any means, you should stop doing that.
