The act of giving back to society — either through time or money — has helped communities over time to strengthen and grow. But what motivates some to act and others to remain on the sidelines? New research is showing that an individual’s interaction with groups can influence their prosocial behaviour and that giving, in particularly through monetary forms, can have important consequences to one’s happiness and well-being.
