Jason Hope recently donated $500,000 to the SENS Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that is located in California that focuses on developing, promoting, and ensuring that many people will have access to rejuvenation biotech that they are working on. Hope has payed attention to the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey and has been interested in the work that the SENS Foundation is doing for many years, and he feels that their approach to the problems associated with human aging could have great impact on the world. Hope expressed his support for the SENS Foundation and his hope that his donation will help to move their work forward quicker.
Mike Kope, Chief Executive Officer of the SENS Foundation, made the announcement about Jason Hope’s donation while speaking at “Breakthrough Philanthropy,” which is an event that took place at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. He went on to express the importance of putting together a refreshed biotechnology industry and explained that this was the purpose for the SENS Foundation. After speaking a bit more about the Foundations purpose, Kope explained that the donation made by Jason Hope would be a huge help and that it should move the company forward a lot faster with its anti-aging related work.
Aubrey de Grey explained that Jason Hope’s donation would, specifically, help the SENS Foundation to work on breaking molecular bonds that are a part of the reason why older people suffer from diabetes, long-sightedness, and skin aging. She stated that his contributions would be especially helpful with the work the foundation is doing to prevent Arteriosclerosis. Many people present at the “Breakthrough Philanthropy” event expressed how impressed they were with how much Mr. Hope really cared about helping to cure the diseases that plague the elderly.
