Movember Foundation

Movember Foundation

Working year round, the Movember Foundation is a global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health.

These funds deliver breakthrough research and services to allow men to live happier, healthier and longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising AUD $580 million globally and funding over 800 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

The Foundation runs awareness and fundraising activities year-round, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognised for its fun and innovative approach to raising money and getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, we challenge men to grow a moustache or to make a commitment to get active and MOVE, both of which are about real action for health and are done to spark conversation and raise vital funds and awareness.

The Foundation’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
