“The Gratitude Effect”
On the surface, gratitude seems like a basic concept, but is so much more than saying thank you. Human brains have a fundamental need to experience and express gratitude; it’s part of our hardwiring. Gratitude can inspire people to share their stories, volunteer for an organization or even make a philanthropic gift. The science of gratitude is backed by decades of research filled with qualitative and quantitative data demonstrating the relationship that gratitude has on the human body and in the philanthropic space. This research paired with a recent gratitude study that surveyed 25,000 Americans done in partnership with NRC Health and Accordant Philanthropy serves as the basis for this highly interactive presentation dedicated to exploring the psychology and neuroscience behind gratitude. Discover how philanthropy professionals can harness the fascinating power of gratitude to transform their organizations and the community.
