Announcing Our Greater Good Parenting Grantees!

March 2, 2018

The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley, is pleased to announce the recipients of grants awarded through our new parenting initiative, Greater Good Parenting: Raising Caring, Courageous Kids. The grants will support organizations that aim to help parents guide their children toward choices that place the long-term good of their communities ahead of their immediate self-interest. Our parenting initiative is supported with funding from the John Templeton Foundation.

We received over 200 applications from organizations all over the world, and we evaluated each one based on clarity and novelty of the project idea, connection to relevant research, and relevance to its target audience, among other key criteria.

Here are the organizations and projects that received funding, ranging between $43,500 and $150,000. The Greater Good Science Center and a team of scientific advisors will help the organizations identify research relevant to their programs, translate this research into lessons for parents, and determine how best to evaluate the success of their work.
