Every day, Western Union consumers around the world are sending money home to help create a brighter future for their loved ones. Their hard-earned dollars are feeding families, building homes or paying for books so children can learn. Each day, as an employee, you are helping support these individuals through the work that you do and through the donations made to the Western Union Foundation.
Employee engagement is an integral part of the work of the Western Union Foundation. This is why we have created a variety of tools and resources to help Western Union employees live our corporate values and give back to our global community, as well as the communities in which our employees live and work.

"There is no greater feeling than the giving of yourself to others. It’s amazing what a difference one can make in another person’s life with little gestures, by sharing a few hours of your time – the impact is priceless. To be the source of hope or strength for someone who had lost it. I wouldn’t trade that feeling for anything!"
Each year, more than half of Western Union employees around the world donate money to the Foundation to support programs that provide access to education and economic opportunity for individuals, families and entire communities, as well as helping people when natural disasters strike.
Thank you for making a difference by donating to the Western Union Foundation.
