VOLUNTEER ON AVERAGE PER YEAR
Not all companies equip their employees with tools for making a difference. Western Union does. On average, more than a thousand employees from across the globe make a difference annually by volunteering their time to support projects in their local communities.
in 2013 & 2014
“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
“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
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
— 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.”
