About Movember

The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity committed to changing the face of men’s health. Officially present in 21 countries, the Movember Foundation is dedicated to delivering significant improvements for men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Meaningful strides have been taken toward achieving our goals,  but there is more work to be done. Each of the causes we support remains in desperate need of further funding, and continue to be issues that men are often uncomfortable discussing. We’re committed to raising vital funds and awareness to improve the lives of men and their families.
To see Movember’s impact, please visit the report,  annual report and financial performance pages. 


The Movember Campaign - How Funds are Raised 

Funds are raised through the Foundation’s annual campaign, Movember, which is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world, during the month previously known as November.
Guys take action by signing up, shaving down their face on Movember 1, and growing a moustache for the month. They grow and groom their new Mo (slang for moustache), asking friends and family to donate to their efforts.
Mo Bros, with their new moustaches, become walking, talking billboards, and like a run or walk for charity they use their hairy ribbon to spark conversations around the often ignored issue of men’s health and seek to raise funds to support the work of the Movember Foundation.
Movember’s not just for men. Women who support men’s health, known as Mo Sistas, are an important part of Movember’s success. Mo Sistas register, start a team and fundraise – they do everything Mo Bros do, they just don’t grow a Mo. Mo Sistas are champions of Movember, rallying the men in their lives to join the movement, grow moustaches and have important conversations about men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey by throwing their own Movember EVENTS or attending one of the official GALA PARTÉS held around the world.


Movember – A Global Movement   

Since Movember’s humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia when 30 Mo Bros first grew moustaches, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement, inspiring more than 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate across 21 countries worldwide. Together, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have raised $556 million, which has funded 832 programs to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health.
