I agree with Maria and Matthew - it's with Fedora, and Fedora itself has no
budget since it's a community-based distribution, similar to the budget for
Debian. She seems to be confusing Red Hat with Fedora here, probably
because the position was posted by employees of Red Hat - but looking at
the tweet it clearly states "The @fedora community is looking for a
Diversity & Inclusion Advisor", so I'm not sure where the confusion sits.

My response would be something like:
Fedora is a community project and does not have a budget for _any_
positions. Red Hat sponsors some people to work on Fedora, but this is
a community initiative and we didn't want to wait on the possibility of
finding sponsorship. I recognize that it severely limits the pool of
people able to help, but that seemed better than no such thing at all.
Many of us who work for Red Hat are working on diversity from a company
perspective as well, but that's not directly related, and again, we
didn't want to block on that.
That's pretty long for a tweet, though. :)
