what do you mean the definition does not match with reality?

an organization that is established for the purpose of making a  
profit has, as adam stated, the objective of making money & thus  
everything it does must be assumed ultimately to be connected with a  
money-making purpose. even if it offers something for free it is  
doing so to increase it's brand and to cultivate favorable PR...for  
the purpose of making money.

what would be an alternate definition?
