We’re based at UC Berkeley, but we’re independently funded by tax-deductible memberships and contributions from friends like you, not by the university. Please help us bring you and millions of others the “science of a meaningful life” by joining the GGSC today. Become a member of the Greater Good Science Center to experience the benefits of generosity—along with exclusive articles, videos, discounts, and more. Read below for details.
