What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. Unchecked, prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15-39 years of age. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides. Movember is uniquely placed to address this crisis on a global scale. We fund groundbreaking projects all over the world, engaging men where they are to understand what works best and accelerate change. By 2030 we aim to: - Reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% - Reduce the rate of male suicides by 25% - Halve the number of deaths from prostate cancer - Halve the number of men dying from testicular cancer - Halve the number of men experiencing serious mental and physical side effects from treatment for prostate cancer or testicular cancer

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Prostate Cancer

We’re set on finding a cure for prostate cancer. But it’s about more than a cure – it’s about improving quality of life for 10 million men around the world who are living with and beyond prostate cancer. In addition to critical biomedical research, Movember works with our global men’s health partners to break new ground. We think differently, collaborate globally and invest quickly in what works.

One example of our work in prostate cancer is True North. True North is a website providing user-friendly information for men with prostate cancer. The website has reached over 45,000 users and 4 in 5 users surveyed feel more informed after their visit.

Population(s) Served
Men and boys

Testicular cancer strikes young. Globally, it’s the most common cancer among young men. At greater than 95%, survival rates are better than good – but for some men, long-term, treatment-related side effects mean quality of life is severely affected. From medical research to straight-talking awareness campaigns and easy digital resources, we’re making leaps and bounds in testicular cancer.

Population(s) Served
Men and boys

The world loses a man to suicide every minute of every day. Suicide is an incredibly complex issue. But we know one thing for sure: improving overall mental health and helping men build stronger social connections can reduce the risk of suicide.

One example of our work in mental health is Movember Conversations. Movember Conversations is an online tool helping people develop the confidence and skills needed to talk with men who are going through tough times. After completing Movember Conversations, 94% of users surveyed said they better understood how to reach out to men who might be struggling and 92% said they had more confidence in having those conversations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We’re taking on men’s health globally, to:
- Reduce the number of men dying prematurely
- Reduce the rate of male suicides
- Reduce deaths from prostate cancer and testicular cancer
- Improve the quality of life for men living with and beyond prostate cancer and testicular cancer

● By 2030 we aim to:
o Reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
o Reduce the rate of male suicides by 25%.
o Halve the number of deaths from prostate cancer.
o Halve the number of men dying from testicular cancer.
o Halve the number of men experiencing serious mental and physical side effects from treatment for prostate cancer or testicular cancer.

To ensure our impact is significant, far-reaching and long-lasting, we prioritise funding for the biggest health issues facing men. Here’s what we focus on:

- Give men the facts
- Create services that work for men
- Partner for scale
- Unite the brightest minds
- Listen to the community and advocate for men

Since the first moustaches were grown in 2003, the Movember community has raised over $950 USD for men’s health. Using funds raised, we've invested in over 1,250 innovative projects across men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

We're set apart by our unique role as the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. We know what works for men – and what doesn’t.

Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

But there is still much work to be done. Movember remains fixed on uniting the world’s brightest minds, sharing knowledge across borders, and directing funding where it’s needed most.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: May 01 - Apr 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
