For a Teaching Forum

I am going to be starting up a teaching website and forum soon. I hope it'll help lots of teachers. The problem is, it will cost me about $300 Australian to set up, and that's not even including promotions or later software updates. I would like to be able to make a little money off of this, or at least break even. I doubt ads are going to cut it. I'd need about 80 cents a day to be able to do it. I'd love some sort of sponsors, perhaps $5 each for 3 months (approximately a school term), on a rotational ad system plus listed somewhere prominently in the forums/on the website.
I'd love to do some actual fundraising. What could I do that would actually work, to help offset these costs? At the moment I don't know if I could ask people to pay a membership fee.
