About m4k Nashville

Mustaches for Kids Nashville is the local chapter of Mustaches for Kids America, a volunteer-run non-profit organization started in Los Angeles in 1999 to do good and have fun by growing Mustaches for children’s charities. The concept is pretty simple, you get pledges/donations to grow a mustache for one month and all that money is donated to local children’s charities selected by the individual chapters.

At the end of the growing season, we have Stache Bash, a mustache-themed costume party during which we crown the winner of the coveted “Sweetest Stache” and hand out other awards that are cherished by the recipients. So it’s all pretty simple: mustache, charity, and competition infused with meaningless pageantry. You can spare four weeks of your life for that.

In the words of Mark Twain, “I’ve never met a man with a mustache that was not good, honest, decent, awesome, good-looking, humble, sexy, wise, and a fantastic dancer.” (from “The Book of Stuff Mark Twain Never Said”)

M4K Nashville is a registered 501(c)3 in the State of Tennessee.


M4KNSH goals are simple.  Raise money for youth charities in the Nashville area, and have fun while doing it.  We strive to give back to this community, create opportunities where there is a void, and invest in our youth to ensure they feel connected to the future.


The year was 2020….a year we all can say we wish would move on as fast as possible.  But a few good people wanted to invest their time and energy to make this world a better place and decided to start here in our beloved home of Nashville.


In 2021 we launched the Nashville chapter and with just 16 “growers” were able to donate $22,000 to our inaugural charity partner High Hopes Development Center in Franklin, TN. This wonderful organization provides preschool, daycare, and therapy to kids with special needs. To learn more about their organization, visit www.highhopesforkids.org


Our 2022 Charity Partner is Barefoot Republic Camp & Retreat Center! At Barefoot, they strive to facilitate Christ-centered  relationships between individuals from diverse racial, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds. They believe that camp is special & that every child should be able to have shared experiences like camp to help them grow into who God created them to be. At Barefoot Republic, they offer multiple opportunities for children and families to experience the Barefoot difference.
