About Campaign

Globally, Jeans For Genes was first established in 1992 by the Chronic Granulomatous Disorder (CGD) Society in UK to fundraise for a diverse group of hereditary diseases. Today, it is a national appeal in countries around the world to fund revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures or treatments for various genetic conditions.

In Singapore, the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) celebrates Jeans for Genes day annually on 25 April, World DNA Day.

Singaporeans are encouraged to unite and celebrate with us, by making a donation while wearing their favourite jeans or by wearing blue.

Through this campaign, NCCS hopes to increase awareness for hereditary causes of diseases such as cancer as well as non-cancer hereditary conditions where much further research is needed.

Funds raised will be used to drive research, expand knowledge and advance care for those with increased genetic risk of developing cancer.

Your gene-rosity saves lives!

About the Charity

Someone in Singapore is diagnosed with cancer every hour. For many, a cancer diagnosis is an emotional and difficult time. The NCCS Cancer Fund (NCCSCF) helps support the fight against cancer by providing financial assistance for needy patients, ensuring sufficient funding for NCCS scientists and clinicians to continue their work in cancer research and promotes cancer education for healthcare professionals and the general public.

NCCS helps over 26,000 cancer patients each year. From the moment they are diagnosed and throughout their treatment we are with them, providing the very best care, by the best people, in the best place.

Donate today and help us give hope to people with cancer.


All donations received are managed by SingHealth Fund (SHF), an institution of Public Character (UEN 201624016E).
All donors are required to provide their Tax Reference number (e.g. NRIC/FIN/UEN where applicable) to enjoy tax deduction. The donation will be automatically included in the donor's IRAS tax assessment. As such, we will not be sending any official receipt, unless upon written request by the donor.
