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

We welcome donations in any amount. All donations are tax-deductible, and donations of $50 or more will earn you a Greater Good membership, which brings a host of valuable benefits, including access to special members-only videos and discounts on our events. Learn more about these benefits on our Membership page, or visit our member/donor Frequently Asked Questions page.

Here are several other ways to make a donation of any amount to the Greater Good Science Center.

Give Online

Make a donation online to the Greater Good Science Center using your credit card. This link will take you to the Greater Good Science Center’s “Give to Cal” webpage at UC Berkeley, where we’re based.

Donors of $50 or more automatically receive Greater Good memberships. Our Federal Tax ID number is 946002123.

Automatic Monthly Gifts

We particularly appreciate automatically recurring gifts: they’re simple to set up using this link for as much, as often, and as long as you wish. For example, for just $10 per month (35 cents per day!) you’ll be a premium-level “Delighted” member indefinitely and provide foundational support, with no further action to take.
