The Federal Government Is Offering $1,000 if You Adopt a Wild Horse
I guess you could call this a win-win situation. The federal government saves money and the person adopting the horse/donkey saves money. Not sure what it costs per year to take care of a donkey, but $1000 seems like a low estimate when you factor in some kind of corral or pen or fenced off area, food, other gear and supplies, and various miscellaneous items.

The BLM should host a BBQ Donkey Day event. They could slaughter a couple hundred donkeys and then BBQ up a bunch and hold donkey recipe contests, etc. It would be a fantastic fundraiser and it would cull the herd a bit too. Definitely a win-win kind of situation!
