The Mo does it again! The Movember Foundation increases to 72nd out of Top 500 NGOs

Ranked 72 out of top 500 NGOs
Mo’s around the world can feel proud at leaving their hairy mark on the charity world. Thanks to your dedication, passion, Mo growing and supporting efforts, the Movember Foundation has been selected as one of the top NGOs (non-governmental organisations) for the third time running by Global_Geneva*. The Foundation has risen up the ranks from 79th to an impressive 72nd place; this is especially significant, as the list has expanded from being the Top 100 NGOs to Top 500 NGOs.

But what does this mean for you? It provides you with the assurance that the funds you’ve raised are being used in innovative world-class men’s health programmes, research and services, while retaining the values that are the basis of everything that we do here at the Movember Foundation.

Some words from our Chief Mo Bro Adam Garone, Movember Foundation CEO and Co-founder: “It's humbling to be ranked 72nd in the world among such a prestigious group of organisations. We firmly believe this achievement is a reflection of our vision to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, of our commitment to our values and to the dedication of the Movember family.”
Thanks to you, your Mo’s, your family, your friends, your workmates and all those who gave your moustache a chance, we were able to get this far and rock the charity world. There’s more work to be done and we’ll continue to make an impact, be transparent, innovative and accountable, and make 2015 the most successful and significant year yet for the Movember Foundation. Join us in making this happen.
