Get Involved



The Greater Good Science Center is based at the University of California, Berkeley, but we don’t receive any funding from the university. Instead, we’re fueled by the generous and visionary support of people like you—people who believe in our mission to foster a more compassionate society.

We invite you to support our center by becoming a GGSC member at the $50 level or higher. All memberships are tax-deductible and bring a host of valuable benefits.
