2015 Canadian Financial Snapshot

$17.5 million raised for Movember 2015 in Canada.

83% of funds raised allocated to men's health programs.

In 2015, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across Canada helped us raise $17.5 Million for the Movember Foundation.

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


 

We distribute funds to a broad range of programs and to trusted men's health partners.

In Canada we have a large number of program partners, including Prostate Cancer Canada. These partners, along with Movember Foundation managed programs, ensure that donations support a broad range of innovative, world-class initiatives.

All funds distributed to our men's health partners are restricted to use in Movember Foundation approved programs only. This means that no funds are used to cover any of our partners' fundraising and promotional costs – 100% goes directly to delivering health initiatives.

The work we fund


 

We keep costs down so donations go where they’re needed most.

In 2015 our Canadian fundraising and admin costs totalled just 17%.

In other words, 83% of all Canadian funds raised have been devoted to helping men live happier, healthier and longer lives.

Allocation of funds from Movember 2015 in Canada saw 83% of funds raised going to men's health programs.
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

$82.3 million raised for men's health

In 2015 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 $82.3 million.

Our focus on costs and economy of scale has resulted in a global cost-to-funds-raised ratio of 20.8%.

As a fiscally conservative organization Movember retains a small percentage of funds to cover future campaigns and to ensure the long-term continuity of the organization. The retained funds are being progressively built up over multiple campaigns, and once the Board of Directors are satisfied they are at a sufficient level, no further funds will be retained.

Distribution of funds from the international 2015 Movember campaign saw 75.2% allocated to men’s health, 4% to retained funds, 13.7% to fundraising costs, and 7.1% to admin costs.
