Emergency Response


We provide funding for nonprofits to support immediate relief and sustainable rebuilding for communities in crisis. Wherever possible, we align our efforts with those of The Western Union Company, which is uniquely positioned to support aid efforts, due to its global presence and ability to make cash readily accessible for those in need.

Impact Since 2001

When there's a crisis, we need partners who can act quickly to help us get support to where it's needed the most. The Western Union Foundation is there when we need them, from providing financial support to fund our relief efforts to mobilizing business resources and employee volunteers from the Western Union Company.
