We hope you know by now that your fundraising efforts have helped us achieve our most successful year to date, but what you might not know is what happens next in the Movember cycle. We would like to take this opportunity to explain what the process is from our end and what goes on outside of Moustache Season...
Donations can be submitted year round, however, for reporting purposes we closed the financial year on April 30, and it is at this point that we’ll know exactly how much has been raised from the Movember 2011 campaign. Next month, PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) audits our financials and we determine the exact amounts that will be directed towards cancer affecting men in the US, through the Prostate Cancer Foundation, LIVESTRONG and the Movember Foundation.
The Movember US team has been working closely with each of our partners to decide on the programs we will support. It goes without saying that we take this process extremely seriously; it’s not simply a matter of handing over the funds. It is a collaborative process and we work together with our partners on developing world-class research and survivorship strategies in line with our long-term strategic goals. Stay tuned for some exciting developments in the coming months.
In September 2012, our Annual Report, which includes the audited results from PWC, and our Form 990 will be available for download from our website in. If you’d like to review our past Annual Reports or Form 990s, please visit the Annual Reports page
KEEPING YOU INFORMED OF OUTCOMES
We make a lot of noise during Moustache Season and ask a lot from the Movember community, so we try hard not to be so demanding of your attention outside of Movember! We would however, like to keep you informed of how your funds are being used and the impact our programs are having on the lives of men and their families dealing with prostate cancer and other male cancers. So, we will be sending you a few emails specifically focused on outcomes during the year. Next week you’ll be receiving your first and it’s all about the incredible awareness you have created for the health issues facing men.
We hope this will help you appreciate the incredible work that is being carried out as a direct result of your fundraising efforts.
Outside of the outcomes emails, there are other ways to stay informed about what we’re doing outside of Moustache Season. Take a look at the below pages:
- News Pages – here's where you can keep up to date with the latest news from Movember – not only relating to outcomes but also information and updates on the funding cycle, news from our men’s health partners and general men’s health information.
- Programs We Fund – here you’ll be able to find the latest information on the different programs Movember is funding, through our men’s health partners and through the Movember Foundation, notably our Global Action Plan (GAP).
