One possiblity you might consider...

You may want to look in to "ServerPronto" (first link on google) for low-cost managed server hardware. The customer service is non-existent, and the reliability occasionally poor. However, for modern hardware connected to a wide-open 100Mbit uplink, you simply can't beat $30 per month per server. I wouldn't even consider them as your primary provider, but as a backup or a mirror, it's a really good deal. It costs less than you spend on coffee.

I've had a standby server there for about half a year, and except for some difficulty in the first week, I haven't had any trouble at all. The server has always been there when I needed it.

And $30/mo is well within the range where you can get people to donate or sponsor a mirror.
