They definitely aren't all money makers. I am the treasurer for DS's not-for-profit centre and last year the centre's profit for the entire year was a princely $10k! That is after a $50k government grant too, so really they operate at a substantial loss.
His centre charges in arrears and doesn't charge a bond, but the committee has been considering it because of people not paying their bills and then skipping out. We usually have between $10k and $20k owing in fees at any one time which is a huge cost to absorb for a centre that operates at a loss most months!
