The Science of Happier Spending
Does spending money make you happier? The answer is yes, if spent on other people, according to Dr. Elizabeth Dunn, co-author of Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending. A researcher on self-knowledge and happiness, Dr. Dunn is an expert on positive psychology and whose research has been featured in The New York Times, The London Times, Time and CNN. Dr. Dunn is a professor in the Psychology Department at the University of British Colombia.
Thursday, October 26, members will hear presentations from the nonprofits at the Old U.S. Mint. Four nonprofits, one from each of the four funding categories, will present how they would spend the $100,000 grant. The four categories are: Arts & Culture; Education & Youth Development; Environment; and, Health & Social Services.
On Thursday, November 2, we will gather to celebrate the winning nonprofit.
