Western Union - Ashoka
Executive in Residence program



Learn more about our programs with this partner.

Through the donations of Western Union, its employees, Agents and friends, the Western Union Foundation provides direct grants to large and small non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that facilitate education and economic opportunity.

We work together to engineer and activate partnerships and community investments that channel educational opportunities where they're most needed to foster economic growth - by preparing people to enter the workforce; supporting small businesses that create jobs for graduates; and growing financial literacy to help people convert wages to wealth as the basis for a more secure future.

Together, the Western Union Company and the Western Union Foundation work with private groups and companies, as well as government organizations across the globe, to advocate for a world where economic opportunity is in reach for everyone.
