Aim. To study the attitude to material resources and intangible values in relation to the level of altruism.
Methodology. A survey was carried out (N = 299), methods of measuring altruistic attitudes (M. Yasin), diagnostics of intentions and expectations in a situation of intended exchange (S. Poddubny) were applied; comparative and discriminant analysis (SPSS 27.0) was performed.
Results. It was found that with a high level of altruism, expectations to receive material resources from a partner in a situation of social exchange are more pronounced. With a low level of altruism, willingness to share material resources is more pronounced than expectation them to get them from an interaction partner. A “formula of altruism” was drawn up based on assessments of the readiness to share intangible and material values, expectations to receive intangible and material values.
Research implications. The results deepen the understanding of the relationship between altruism and attitudes towards material and non-material resources.

Key words

altruism, altruistic attitudes, social exchange, partnership, interpersonal partnership, material resources, intangible values
