You can run a non-exit TOR node can't you? It's not as great, because
you're not allowing people to hop out of the TOR network, but you can
still act as a cog in the machine and contribute a set amount of
bandwidth.

P.S. Apparently the NSA runs a healthy number of TOR exit nodes. Why?
Because most people are silly enough to run unencrypted traffic
through TOR. (I.E. If you connect to a server via telnet, but through
TOR, you're still going to get owned.)
