About Us



The Irish Movember campaign raised €2.2 million in 2013. In Ireland the funds go directly to our men’s health partner, the Irish Cancer Society. At a global level, Movember financials are audited each year by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The chart below shows how these funds are applied:

90.1% Allocated to Men's Health Programmes

Of the funds raised in Ireland in 2013, 90.1% has been committed to programmes supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives. The Movember team is proud of the high percentage of funds committed to programmes, which is well above international best practice of 80% of funds raised invested in programmes.
The funds allocated to programmes are run directly by the Movember Foundation and the Irish Cancer Society. Together, these channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programmes in line with our strategic GOALS.

For a complete report on every project we have funded and the impact the Movember campaign is having, please visit the FUNDED PROGRAMMES section.
NOTE: All funds donated to the Irish Cancer Society are restricted and are only used for Movember Foundation approved programmes. This means that no funds are used to cover any part of our partner’s fundraising and promotional costs, with 100% of the funds going to programme delivery.
