About Movember
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We run awareness and fundraising activities, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, men and women around the world raise funds by growing or supporting a moustache, getting physically active, or by hosting or an event. Not only do these commitments raise vital funds, they also generate powerful and often life-changing conversations. Millions have joined the movement, raising $710M to help us fund more than 1,200 men’s health projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

We have one goal: to stop men dying too young.
