With ~30 GSoC GNOME students, the GNOME Foundation receives ~15.000$.
And that every year. It is up to the GNOME Foundation to use this money
wisely. If what you say is correct, do we all agree that spending this
money for travel and accomodation sponsorship for GUADEC is the best way
to spend this money?

AFAIK Google sponsors students with *more* 500 USD to attend conferences, apart from the 500 USD that the organization receives..
It was in this way for the 2 years I've been a GSoC student.
