Possibly you should consider buying RHEL, if you need the updated OS
faster. The CentOS Developers do everything possible to make this an
excellent product and one that has outstanding support.

The $ the project receives goes for hardware and network connectivity.
Nobody is paid. The CentOS developers devote their time and hard work
because they want this project to be successful.
