Giving is good for everyone

Here’s a reminder from the Greater Good blog: 5 Ways Giving Is Good for You.


  1. Giving makes us feel happy.
  2. Giving is good for our health.
  3. Giving promotes cooperation and social connection.
  4. Giving evokes gratitude.
  5. Giving is contagious.

Really. Every one of your donors, from the lowest to the highest, benefits from giving to you.

Remember that if you’re ever feeling guilty about asking. When you ask, you create an opportunity to give. And when someone gives, their life gets better.

Second, if you’re a fundraiser who’s not a donor, not only are you a clueless faker, you’re missing great opportunities to improve your life. Get moving and start giving!
