Want to make your donation twice as nice? Many companies encourage charitable giving through gift matching programs that recognize your donation and can increase your fundraising total. To find out more information and to see if your company gift matches click here. Please be sure to note if your company has a minimum or maximum donation required for their gift matching program to apply.

When using your company’s gift matching system, please make sure to note the registration number of the Mo Bro or Mo Sista and/or the team name you want the donation to apply in order to expedite the process.

For additional information regarding matching gifts company-wide, please e-mail giftmatching.us@movember.com.

Mo Bros and Mo Sistas need to clearly record all cash/check donations on the Donation Form and send them in with their payment to Movember for donation and receipt processing. Once we have received this form we will email receipts within one month and mail out receipts within three months. Please note that to speed up the process and save postage costs (and a tree), email is the preferred method for sending receipts.

A gift made by will or living trust can be simply accomplished by a revision or amendment to your will prepared by your attorney. This may be structured as a gift of cash, securities, real estate, a percentage of your estate, or the residue left after the other gifts in the will, however, Movember can only accept unrestricted gifts. There is currently no limit on amounts deductible from federal gift and estate taxes for charitable gifts made by will or trust. We recommend you consult an attorney if you choose to pursue this option, or feel free to contact us if you have any other questions at info.us@movember.com.

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, mental health and suicide prevention. 

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.

Mental health and suicide prevention – 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. 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.

For more detail on where the funds go click here. The Movember Foundation (Tax ID: 77-0714052) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.


 
We’re proud that our global admin and fundraising ratio is 19% of funds raised. We operate within international best practice, which is in the range of 15%-25%. Please visit the Financials page for more information about Movember's monetary outcomes.
