Yes it is.  Having trademarks doesn't have anything to do
with being non-profit or not.

Yes, they are.  See the masthead on page 8 of any issue of QST.

Both organizations are also exempt under 501(c)(3), which
means that donations are probable tax-deductible in the US.
This is what most people here probably really mean when
they say "non-profit". 

None of which has anything to do with the question.
Non-profit organizations don't get any special privileges
on the amateur radio bands.
