Jason Hope’s Focus On Philanthropy

There is nothing that is so heart touching than benefiting from the proceeds of philanthropy. Many people have come out to support the well being of the people by spending their time and money directly or indirectly. Jason Hope is one person who has strived in his life to focus on philanthropy. He is so passionate to assist the people to lead better lives by working with several organizations that offer philanthropic services, especially in Arizona society. He anticipates equipping these organizations with enough resources and influence to improve the quality of people’s life.

Jason Hope currently funds some programs and research in the SENS foundation, which is a non-profit organization in Arizona that researches to find solutions to aging. The organization started in 2009, intending to promote various anti-aging technologies that can prevent anti-aging diseases and conditions. It works around the clock to ensure that every person who has these diseases or conditions quickly access the possible remedies to them.

In the way of uplifting the SENS Foundation, Jason Hope gave them 500, 000 US Dollars, which they used to develop more new anti-aging technologies mostly on the older people. Aubrey de Grey, who is the Foundation’s CSO, said that they used part of the donation to research successfully on Arteriosclerosis. Arteriosclerosis is a condition also called the hardening of the arteries. It develops when the arteries become less elastic and flexible hence reducing the supply of blood to the body tissues. Researchers from SENS established that this condition leads to high blood pressure then diabetes, long-sightedness, and physical skin aging.

Hope hails the Foundation because they use such distinct approaches to face anti-aging. He highlights that some of the anti-aging diseases affect the functioning of the body, and they should be prevented: though some traditional medicines heal them. He yearns to support millions of scientific research organizations that are innovative, especially form the US.

Some of the foundations that the philanthropist has supported are Wahlberg Youth Foundation, Desert Mountain States Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Teach for America Phoenix, Family Health International, The Agassi Foundation, among others.

Philanthropy: Another Powerful Energy Source

Options, affordability, philanthropy. These may not be things you have associated with home energy service providers in the past, however, that is changing, and Stream Energy have been pioneers of that change since its’ founding in 2005. This past year Dallas and many areas in Texas was a prime example of the company’s corporate and individual philanthropy making a major difference in the lives of many who were affected last year by the devastating tornados and floods that ravaged Texas and surrounding areas, leaving many without homes and basic necessities. During this time Stream Energy sprang into action to help many Dallas residents who had endured so much.

Stream Energy has formed its own departmental arm within the company that focuses on philanthropic giving- “Stream Cares”. Formulating departments that focus on philanthropy is uncommon for most corporations, not to mention energy companies but Stream Energy isn’t your run-of -the-mill gas and electric company. They offer far more to their customers than energy resources and far more to the community at large during times of distress and need. Not only do they support their community monetarily, but the associates are hands-on and give of their time and energy.

In March 2018, Stream Energy was featured in an article on Patch.com where their philanthropic efforts in the Dallas area were showcased. One way that this innovative company helps the community is by supporting other organizations in the area such as the Salvation Army and an organization named Hope Supply Co., that provides resources for those who are homeless and their families. They also work with are veterans through “Operation Once in a Lifetime” which not only provided monetary assistance but also organizing events for them and their family members to have a meal and enjoy a special time of celebration together as a community.

Stream Energy is helping to set a new precedent for other energy companies who would only gain from following suit by providing so much more than energy services to the communities they serve.
