In their new book,The Paradox of Generosity, sociologists Christian Smith and Hilary Davidson tell us there’s a scientific connection between generosity and happiness. The researchers surveyed 2,000 individuals (comprised of 40 families in 12 different states—from different classes and races) over a five-year period about their spending habits and lifestyles. Participants who identified themselves as “very happy” reported volunteering for 5.8 hours per month. Those who donated more than 10% of their income also reported lower rates of depression.
What’s more, Smith and Davidson found that participants who were emotionally generous in their relationships (giving love and being emotionally available) were healthier (48%) than those who were not (31%). The point? Our ability to step outside of ourselves and give to others is an essential ingredient for happiness.
Adam Grant of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania is also among the rising tide of researchers promoting a culture of generosity. An organizational psychologist, Professor Grant, describes three orientations that describe our giving patterns: givers, takers, and matchers. These patterns affect whether organizations are joyful or toxic for human beings. His studies tell us that practicing generosity—what he calls making “microloans of our knowledge, our skills, our connections to other people”—becomes transformative: for ourselves, other, and the communities around us.
When you give to DCC’s mission and ministry you are not only doing something that research tells us will make you a happier human being, but you are investing in an organization that benefits the lives of people in this community and in other parts of the world.
We invite you to partner with us in making this world a better place. Your financial investment helps us contribute to the common good here in Davis (and around the world) as we grow more fully into a people of boundless compassion, becoming a house of prayer for all people.
