Have you read the policy? they are a non-profit org and would probably like some help with cost of running and maintaining the system.

I believe that this is fairly common - even though the servers are retired ones, they still need parts/software updates and someone there has to make sure that the rules and regs are upheld. It sounds like a payment of between 2USD and 10 of your local currency (whichever is higher)is a small price to pay.

I think that it is a useful system to use if you need servers but can't afford to buy one or run it - also useful if you are studying for a cert and just want a server for the lifetime of your training.

If you can't think of a use for it, it's probably not something you need.
