Toward the greater good

Launched in 2021 by Roblox founder and CEO David Baszucki and best-selling author Jan Ellison Baszucki, Baszucki Group leverages private giving, impact investing, advocacy, storytelling and community building to drive foundational change.
A primary objective of Baszucki Group is to transform mental health outcomes, beginning with bipolar disorder, by supporting initiatives at the intersection of metabolism, psychiatry and neuroscience. Our investments in democracy, conservation and our communities are synergistic with our life sciences initiatives.

Our work emphasizes innovative platforms and programs in five primary areas:
