Red Hat makes money.
Red Hat spends some of the money it makes providing the infrastructure that Fedora uses.
Red Hat _deliberately_ separated Fedora as a brand to differentiate it to better separate community efforts from monetization efforts to _reduce_ the surface over which conflicts of interest between business interests and community interests overlap and get mixed up. They are not completely separated, because community interests will always be wider than available resources which Red Hat can prudently provide Fedora and still remain a solvent business.
