Even those without money can donate:
"Do you have items of value that you no longer have a use for?
Bring them in to the San Diego Org no later than July 22 (2008).
Your items will be liquidated and the proceeds of your donation will go directly to the Ideal Org Building Fund."
Suggested items include “gold or silver jewelry, broken chains, old rings, other jewelry with or without diamonds or gemstones, flatware, tea sets, candlesticks, leaded crystal, cut glass, figurines, fine china, Swiss watches, and vintage items and antiques."
In every org checked so far, more money is being taken in from fund-raising than from the selling of training and processing.
This makes fund-raising the primary income source of most, if not all, Class V orgs today.
