91.7% Allocated to Men's Health Programs

Of the funds raised in Australia in 2013, 91.7% has been committed to programs supporting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health initiatives. The Movember team is proud of the high percentage of funds committed to programs, which is well above international best practice of 80% of funds raised invested in programs.

1.8% Administration Costs and 6.5% Fundraising Costs totalling 8.3%

A number of fundraising and administrative tasks are necessary to run an organisation and campaign the size of the Movember. The team is proud of its low administration and fundraising costs, which in Australia was 8.3% of the funds raised. This is well below international best practice which is in the range of 15% - 20%.

Costs that are grouped under administration and fundraising include:
  • Credit card processing fees
  • Systems development and technology to process donations securely
  • Bank fees
  • Legal costs
  • Salaries for admin support staff
  • Insurance
  • Telecommunications and computer equipment
  • Office rent and general office maintenance costs
