Who we are

Our Inspiration

The MoneyGram Foundation was inspired by MoneyGram International’s 70-year history of providing a global financial services network used by millions around the world to secure life’s essentials for their families. Motivated by our customers who seek to provide new and better opportunities for their loved ones, the Foundation was established with the goal of empowering school-aged youth through educational initiatives across the globe.

Thanks to MoneyGram’s international network of offices, as well as a network of thousands of agent locations worldwide, the Foundation is able to identify and thoroughly vet worthy nonprofit and non-governmental organizations that are working in some of the most remote areas of the world.

We are also proud to have the support of MoneyGram employees and stakeholders, who generously donate to the Foundation, and provide thousands of hours of volunteer support around the world every year.
