Yes, if you have registered as a Supporter in previous years, you will need to sign up online again. Please ensure you use your Supporter Number when completing the form. Thank you for supporting Jeans for Genes again!

Don’t stress! Go to the bottom of the login page, and click the link where it says ‘Forgot Password' You will then enter your email address and the password will be resent to you.
A supporter number is like a membership number you receive when you sign up to participate in Jeans for Genes.

If you have registered with Jeans for Genes before, you can find your supporter number on the letters or emails we have sent you, on your returns form, or on any Jeans for Genes tax invoice you received. If you think you should have a Supporter Number but can’t find it, please call us on 1800 436 437.

If you have never registered or signed up with Jeans for Genes before, the system will create your Supporter Number once you have completed the sign up process.

Once you have signed up, you will be given access to your very own online fundraising page.

Online fundraising is a great tool to help you raise money. It allows you to keep track of your donations and to easily contact your friends, family and colleagues to encourage them to support you. You can add a photo, tell your story, and connect on social media.

We suggest you kick start your fundraising by making a personal donation. Then let everyone know they can donate via your secure online fundraising page too.

You can update your online profile page at any time. Once logged in, click on “Edit your page” to make changes.

Your donation goes directly to Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI) and helps fund medical research that aims to cure or prevent: genetic diseases like cystic fibrosis, cancer affecting children and adults, birth defects, and neurological conditions like epilepsy and autism.

The work of our scientists is shared with other research collaborators and impacts everyday people across the globe. A cure for a specific genetic disease discovered here in Australia, means a cure for that disease in all communities. Just as our researchers have travelled from all over the world to work here, our research knows no borders. And like cancer, genetic diseases and birth defects, our research and the cures we find don’t discriminate.

You can make a secure online donation simply by clicking here!

Or, you can donate over the phone or send a cheque or money order in the post. Our phone number is 1800 436 437 and our postal address is Jeans for Genes, Children’s Medical Research Institute, Locked Bag 2023, Wentworthville NSW 2145.

We thank you for helping Aussie kids fight genetic diseases!
