Your Gift Matched For the Greater Good!

The Greater Good begins with you. Make the world a kinder, happier place—and see your generosity matched dollar-for-dollar.

Now more than ever, the Greater Good Science Center wants to share its resources for compassion, connection, and resilience as widely as possible. And we can't do that without your help: Our work relies on the generosity of donors like you.

And this year, your generosity will go twice as far: Every donation we receive as part of this crowdfunding campaign will be doubled! 

Studies show that trying research-tested positive practices measurably improves your well-being. The GGSC takes the best science, makes it interesting and useful, turns it into stories, and spreads it far and wide. Happiness and health ripple to homes, schools, and workplaces around the world. 

If you've enjoyed our articles, podcasts, videos, or online courses, we invite you to pay it forward. More Greater Good support means more science, turned into more resources, shared with more people, who benefit from more of all the good stuff of life: more joy, more connection, more mindfulness, more awe. 


The Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, and teachers skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society. Since 2001, we have been at the fore of a new scientific movement to explore the roots of happy individuals, strong social bonds, and altruistic behavior—the "science of a meaningful life." 


Our Work:

  • Equips individuals with research-based skills that improve their social and emotional well-being.
  • Brings a trusted, inclusive voice to the cultural conversation about compassion, connection, and happiness.
  • Empowers people to be agents of change in their own communities ad organizations, improving institutions from the inside out.

We thank you for joining and supporting our efforts to make the world—your world—a happier, healthier, better place!
