What exactly is the Visa Checkout matching offer?
- When you use Visa Checkout to donate to a Mo Bro, Mo Sista, or Movember through us.movember.com, Visa will match up to $25 of your donation. General donations to the Movember Foundation will be matched generally to Movember. But if you donate to an individual Mo Bro or Mo Sista using Visa Checkout, then that Mo Bro will see your donation plus a Visa Checkout matching donation on their MoSpace. Matching Donations will appear within 3-5 business days and Visa will match up to $25 per donation up to a total of $1,000,000 USD in matching donations.
How many times will Visa Checkout match my donation?
- While you can donate using Visa Checkout as many times as possible — after all, Visa Checkout makes it easier to shop online - Visa Checkout can only match one donation per donor. Encourage your friends to use Visa Checkout too and help get to $1M in matching donations from Visa to help change the face of men's health.
When is the matching offer valid?
- The offer is available now through December 6, 2015 or whenever we hit $1M in total matching donations. Donate to Movember and use Visa Checkout to make your donation go further. Donate now!

The Movember Foundation is the global charity that advocates for men, raising funds and awareness for men’s health. We want to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives through investing in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical activity.
Since 2003, we’ve empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement. Through the moustaches grown, the connections created, and the conversations generated, we’ve raised over $650 million and helped fund 1,000 breakthrough men’s health programs in 21 countries.
But there is still much work to be done. When it comes to their health, too many men don’t talk, don’t take action, and die too young.
Every Movember, we challenge men to grow and women to support a moustache or make a commitment to get active and MOVE for 30 days. Men and women sign up at Movember.com and choose to Grow, Give, or MOVE.
Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month. Men and women can commit to MOVE every day during Movember. After signing up, get friends, family, or colleagues to donate to your efforts and change the face of men’s health.

Funds raised through the Movember US campaign go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health programs supporting our key issues – prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
- Prostate cancer – We invest in research and health services that will result in new tests and treatments to better diagnose the disease and stop its progression.
- Testicular cancer – We invest in research that will result in a better understanding of the disease and why some men relapse and others do not.
- Poor mental health – We invest in programs to help men and boys stay mentally healthy. In the US, we invest in health services that will focus on community-level prevention programs to improve mental health.
- Physical inactivity – We are investing in projects that encourage men to be more physically active.
These programs are funded either directly by the Movember Foundation or through our men’s health partners.
- The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is the world's leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating prostate cancer research.
- Prevention Institute is a national non-profit dedicated to improving community health and well-being by building momentum for effective primary prevention.
All funds distributed to our men's health partners are restricted to use in Movember Foundation approved programs only. This means that no funds are used to cover any of our partners' fundraising and promotional costs – 100% goes directly to delivering health initiatives.
