Of course it's a fundraiser. There is nothing wrong with that. They
need money for the "real" research!

The cost to add somebody from FTDNA to the NGS project is almost
probably less than $0.01. It just is moving bits stored on
some piece of spinning nickel somewhere to somewhere else, all
done electronically. There is of course the price to process
the credit card.
