What is the Movember Foundation?

The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity.

The Foundation raises funds that deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs that enable men to live happier, healthier and longer lives.

Awareness and fundraising activities are run year-round by the Foundation, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, men are challenged to grow a moustache or make a commitment to get active and MOVE. Not only do these commitments raise vital funds but they also generate powerful and often life changing conversations.

Committed to disrupting the status quo, millions have joined the movement, raising $825 million and funding over 1,000 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

In addition to tackling key physical health issues faced by men, the Foundation is committed to encouraging men to stay healthy in all areas of their life, with a focus on men staying socially connected, becoming more open to discussing their health and significant moments in their lives.

The Foundation’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on men’s health *
