Fundraisers sound like a good idea.
I didn't realize that of the 1,000+ members that they didn't all participate on the board.
You could get banners from various advertisers that pay commissions from CJ.com or LinkShare.com. but the commissions are paid on sales. Naturally, if the members didn't buy anything, the site would not gain any revenues. They have banners small enough that could fit to the right of the RedsZone logo and you could rotate those banners.
