Yes. Almost all open source developers work out of the goodness of their heart.
And what we (the users) can do is,
1) If you are good with PHP, MySQL, you can apply and join the team to help out.
2) If you are good with PHP, MySQL but don't have time for official development, you can create few free plugins and release it for the community.
3) If you are not good with development, but good with designing, you can release free MyBB themes.
4) If you are not good with designing or development, you can help spread the name of MyBB to the world, like recommending MyBB to your friends who are about to start a forum, or want to convert their existing forum.
5) If you have some extra cash, you can donate it to MyBB, so that they can maintain server, domain and other expenses.

If none of the above is an option for you, you can keep the MyBB copyright in footer to show your appreciation towards hardwork.
