Philanthropy is important to Jason Hope. He has decided to support organizations that are focused on some of his greatest passions. One of the organizations that he stands behind is the SENS Foundation. They are well-known for their anti-aging treatments. However, there is a lot more behind the organization. They want to enhance the lives of others, making them of higher quality.
In the year 2010, Jason Hope gave a generous contribution of $500,000 to this research foundation. This led to the foundation being able to create a new laboratory and start a new research program. This was something that was pleasing to him, considering the fact that much of their research is focused on looking for cures for degenerative diseases. He has specifically talked about how lung disease and Alzheimer’s not only affect the lungs and mind, but they cause the body to break down prematurely.
Jason Hope is interested in helping others find organizations to support. He outlines several steps that individuals can take as they begin their journey as philanthropists. The first step is involves a person discovering their passions. This allows them to seek out organizations that have a similar focus. The next step is deciding whether to work at a local level or a national or international level. The third step involves deciding how a person will give of themselves. When it comes to working with local organizations, donating time is a possibility. Financial support is possible on all levels. Jason Hope says that the last thing to do is as much research as possible.
Working with the SENS foundation has brought him a lot of hope. He wants others to have a better quality of life and knows that this foundation is working toward that goal. He likes working with organizations that will challenge common beliefs in specific fields and will break down walls.
