Series Big Idea
We are genetically wired to be generous.
The concept behind this series is that we all have a “generosity profile.” We are all wired for generosity, but we experience this wiring in different ways. Understanding your profile can help you leverage your natural inclinations and also challenge you to recognize areas in which you can grow.
NOTE: The survey mentioned in this material to determine your generosity profile is no longer available. But it is not necessary for the series material since descriptions are given for each profile.
