VOLUNTEERING:

“In volunteering my time reviewing scholarship application essays, I realized how hard getting an education, let alone a good one, can be even in this country. I’m proud that Western Union enables me to help others achieve their dreams.”

— Cornelia Lingertat
Colorado, U.S.

“I believe education is a basic right for everyone. I’m so proud that through volunteering and a grant from the Western Union Foundation, our team helped a local center for less-fortunate and orphaned children rebuild their library and classroom.”

— Teo Gatmaitan
Quezon City, Philippines

GIVING:

Through the annual Western Union Foundation Employee Giving Campaign, Western Union employees around the world come together to support education by giving to the Foundation. Through a uniquely generous gift match program, employee donations are matched by Western Union, significantly increasing the impact of every dollar donated.

“I give to the Foundation because I
believe it’s the right thing to do. I
believe education is a key to a
brighter future and am continually
impressed by the numbers of people
we are able to help – all around
the world.”

— Lissa Montisano-Koen,
New Jersey, U.S.

“I give because I believe it’s important to help people in need – so they can have a chance of achieving a better life. Not every child has the opportunity to go to school or live a worry-free life. My small donation, with the company matching support, can make that happen for many around the world. I’m proud to work with colleagues who feel the same way.”

— Marlene Sturm
Vienna, Austria
