When people donate money to Debian, it goes into SPI and other bank accounts.  
There is no Debian bank account, as you say, Debian itself does not pay any 
intern nor does it pay anything else.

The Debian money is transferred from the SPI bank account to the Outreachy bank 
account directly.

People give this money to SPI because of the great work that all Debian 
volunteers are doing.  SPI and Outreachy both take commissions for handling 
this money.  The remainder goes to maybe 2 or 3 interns each round.
