Money can be exchanged for goods and services.

Not all do. Some, called "non-profit" or "not for profit" companies and organizations exist to further some goal, rather than make money for the owners (e.g. Red Cross). The ones that do exist to make money do so because the people who formed them did so with that purpose in mind. Some people make a living by doing a job that produces some particular good or service. Some make a living by starting or running companies.

If you don't want to make money, why bother with a company? It's way easier to create and run a non profit, and you get a simplified tax status
