How do you finance/afford your computer collection?

I do contract programming, computer repairs, and sale some excess
computers to low income families to help pay for my collection right
now. I also use a big portion of my regular job income pay for all of
this. It's at the point now that I will need more funds than I can come
up with on my own, so I will be sitting up a non profit to help get
funds for all of this.

Basically I take money out of my budgest and buy something when it
strikes me. Lately, Ive actually turned down some of the more popular
computer models because I either have one or more, or space is at a
premium. I also pay monthly for small off-site storage to hold some
machines as I'm reaching over 150 computers+accessories now. Is it
feasible to start a non-profit org to help pay for some of the costs one
incurs while enjoying this hobby or how would one solicit donations? I
am reluctant to become too commercial or plaster my domain with ads.
