€55 million raised for men's health

In 2016 the Movember community championed men’s health in 21 countries across the world. Through the growth of more than half a million moustaches we raised €55 million.

These donations allow us to raise awareness, invest in vital men's health initiatives and run Movember each year. Globally, we're tackling some of the biggest issues affecting men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health and suicide prevention.

Programmes we fund


Distribution of funds from the international 2016 Movember campaign saw 76.8% allocated to men’s health, 4.4% to retained funds, 12.5% to fundraising costs, and 6.3% to admin costs.

Our focus on costs and economy of scale has resulted in a global cost-to-funds-raised ratio of 18.8%.

Costs that fall under fundraising and admin include:
  • Credit card processing fees
  • Systems development and technology to process donations securely
  • Bank fees
  • Legal costs
  • Salaries for admin support staff
  • Telecommunications and computer equipment
  • Insurance
  • Office rent and maintenance costs
  • Travel
