2021 United States Financial Snapshot

$18.1 million raised for Movember 2021 in the United States.

76.6% of funds raised allocated to men's health projects.

In 2021, Mo Bros and Mo Sisters from across the United States helped us raise $18.1 million for Movember.

These donations allow us to raise awareness, invest in vital men's health initiatives and run Movember each year. We want to help men live happier, healthier and longer lives. We do this by investing in the following critical areas: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.


We distribute funds to a broad range of men's health projects and to trusted men's health partners.

In the United States, our project partners include the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Prevention Institute. These partners, along with Movember managed men's health projects, ensure that donations support a broad range of innovative, world-class initiatives.

All funds distributed to our men's health partners are restricted to use in Movember approved projects only.
