The Movember Foundation

We’re the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. We're an all-year round charity most known for our moustache growing campaign in November. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men today: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide. We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact.

We're independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

By 2030, our ambition is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
