Depends on the objective.

Donations or in long term some big company acquires it.

Eh? If I own a big company lets say XYZ, and i fund Firefox, how would it help my company? Just by funding a browser? Ok my name will be splashed on there site, but whats the point? I mean for a big company that kinda name wouldnt matter much...would it?
