The Movember Foundation is the charity that promotes men’s health. The charity hosts an annual Movember campaign in which people raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues through peer-to-peer fundraising on Movember.com.
Using the moustache as the driving symbol of the movement, Movember focuses on the three key areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health & suicide prevention. Since inception, the Movember Foundation has raised $837 million and funded over 1,200 projects in more than 20 countries.
Movember was started in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia by Adam Garone, Travis Garone, Luke Slattery, and Justin (JC) Coughlin. Inspiring 26 other friends with a desire to “bring back” the trend of growing moustaches, the movement was born. The next year, nearly 500 people raised over $40,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. At the time, it was the largest donation the PCFA had ever received.
Three years after starting the Movember movement, the organization was granted official charity status in Australia. In 2009, Movember obtained official charity status in the United States.
