Where The Money Goes

We know that with great moustaches comes great responsibility and we take that seriously.  

Of the funds raised in the UK in 2012, 82.2% has been committed to programmes supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives. A number of fundraising and administrative tasks are necessary to run an organisation and campaign the size of Movember, however this has only required 11% of the fund raised. We’re very proud of the high percentage of funds committed to programmes, which is above international best practice of 80% of funds raised invested in programmes.

Movember's vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health. Globally, we are committed to supporting three of the biggest health issues facing men:

•    Prostate cancer

•    Testicular cancer

•    Mental health

Funds raised by the global Movember community are invested in programmes that directly support these causes in four key programme areas including:

•    Awareness and education

•    Living with and beyond cancer

•    Staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness

•    Research

All programmes are facilitated by the Movember Foundation and are in line with the Movember Board's strategic priorities. To learn more about Movember's men's health initiatives and funding cycle visit FUNDED PROGRAMMES.

 Our decisions to fund programmes are shaped directly by our vision, values and goals. Movember has stringent and formal policies around the programmes we will fund and we’re privileged to work with experts and world-class organisations that respect and adhere to these principles.
