Probably not, but according to a recent study that spurred this article

how much or how little and regardless of whether it was given to
individuals or organizations) was found to make people feel happier.
In light of this study and others like it, we hope you understand
that OC is just trying to make you happy when we ask you for a donation!
Seriously though... whether or not you decide give to OC after
reading this, we want to encourage you (our alumni) to find a
philanthropic cause in the month of May and make a donation to it.
If what we're doing catches your eye and you want to jump on board,
great! Oklahoma Christian is doing so many exciting things and your
support is always welcomed and needed. People who give to Oklahoma Christian make a huge difference in helping
prepare our current students to go out and make a positive impact on the
But if you find another cause that you believe in and decide to
invest in it, that's great too. You'll be a happier person in the long
run because of your philanthropy. Plus, the cause you give to will
benefit, and OC will benefit as well from having happier alumni. If you make a donation to another cause this month, let us know by
including the name of the cause and how you felt after making the
donation in the comments section below
