Hope has advocated for alternative educational programs arguing that the current system is not appropriate for everyone. He is particularly interested in investing in ideas from high school and college students. This is because they may not have the resources to start businesses that could be the future. He also acts as an advisor to these companies tapping from the vast experience that he has had over the years.

He is also at the Director’s Circle of the Arizona Science Center. This is an institution whose vision is important to him.
Jason’s philanthropic interest in biotechnology led him to invest in the SENS Foundation. He pledged $500,000 to help the foundation in carrying out research in rejuvenation and fighting age-related disease. SENS is a non-profit organization working to develop rejuvenation technologies and thus stop aging. One of the scientists working at the agency explained that the funds would go into research of arteriosclerosis, a disease that is associated with old age. This was announced at the Breakthrough Philanthropy event that was hosted by the Thiel Foundation. Hope said that the work that SENS Foundation was doing would come to define the future of healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
