OVERVIEW


WHAT

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men's health.

Since 2003, we have raised 837M USD, and 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 helped fund more than 1,200 breakthrough men’s health projects in more than 20 countries.

WHEN

Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. It is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 20 countries. In 2007, Movember officially launches in the US in partnership with Prostate Cancer Foundation.

FUNDS


Funds raised go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health projects – supporting our key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. To date, the Movember Foundation has helped fund more than 1,200 men's health projects.

We fund these health projects through the Movember Foundation itself, and our men’s health partners.

Prostate cancer and testicular cancer

We invest in research and health services that contribute to less men dying from prostate and testicular cancer and to improve the quality of life for those that live with the disease, both physically and mentally.

Mental health and suicide prevention

Mental health is an integral part of health. We invest in projects that help men and boys stay mentally healthy. In the US, we invest in health services that will focus on community-level prevention projects to improve mental health.
