You appear to have confused readme.txt and license.txt . There is nothing
that disallows a request for donations to be included in a software
distribution, but the OSD disallows demanding royalties or restricting
fields of use.

Ethics is so subjective, that it is hard for it to have any meaning in a
legal context.  Things which aren't about the law and enforceability under
the law have no place in license.txt, and only generate confusion.
