Cutting edge research from the University of Notre Dame’s Science of Generosity initiative will be featured as a permanent exhibit at a preeminent science center in Louisiana, says Ann Fumarolo.

Representatives from Notre Dame, The Community Foundation of North Louisiana and Sci-Port: Louisiana’s Science Center today announced the creation of the permanent exhibit, which was made possible through a $43,884 grant from The Foundation.

"For the first time ever, scientific research that quantifies the impact of philanthropy on the individual and society is accessible in an interactive exhibit," said Paula Hickman, executive director of The Community Foundation of North Louisiana. "We are pleased to share with the public what we have known all along: generosity positively transforms the donor as well as the recipient."
