Jeans for Genes

Deadline 12th August

The focus in this funding round will be on supporting small disorder specific charities to adapt, respond and recover from the effects of the pandemic, with a simplified grant application opening for genetic disorder charities in the UK on 1 July 2021.

The deadline for applications to be submitted will be 12 August, for funding to be given to charities by November 2021, and in this funding round Jeans for Genes will be awarding one-off unrestricted grants of £2,500.

As well as being registered charities with an income under £100,000, to be eligible, charities must be disorder specific or one whose beneficiaries are solely those with genetic disorders. Among the other criteria, they must also not have received a Jeans for Genes grant in 2020.
