After businessman, investor and philanthropist Marius Jakulis Jason publicly announced that 70% of his family’s wealth will be left to a charity fund. In 2019 the “Marius Jakulis Jason Foundation” was established, which provides financial support to talented business developers, academics and students who can and want to contribute to the growth of the Lithuanian economy.
Fund funds are allocated to three directions: business, knowledge and science. During four years of operation, the philanthropic foundation has already provided grants, scholarships and investments worth almost 1.8 million EUR. The biggest part of them – 860K EUR – were grated as salaries of Lithuanian and foreign scientists returning from abroad. An objective is to encourage the most talented scientists to build their scientific careers in Lithuania. Part of this amount was allocated to fifteen Ukrainian scientists who fled the war zone in 2022. In total, forty researchers received grants from the foundation over the course of four years.
