Have volunteerism become passe?

In our community, my mom leads this group of volunteers and they have various projects including those that would benefit the women and children in that area. Of course, I find this noble so I help out in any way possible. Months have passed and we have not received any remuneration at all. But no complaints because we like what we do and we like volunteering. These days, though, do you think volunteerism has become passe? Is it a thing of the past? Do you think people will still help without any payment? Or do you think more and more people believe in the saying that "there's no such thing as a free lunch" anymore?
