Leveraging our systems and networks
to create positive societal change.

Corporate Citizenship

SDG-10 icon

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 10 aims at reducing inequality within and among countries. Target 10.c of the goal aims to reduce the costs of migrant remittance transfers to less than 3%, saving remitters $20 billion annually.  

MoneyGram proudly reports its average fee to customers is approx. 2.9%, significantly lower than the 6.3% industry average reported by the World Bank and in line with the UN’s target. 

Crisis Disbursement Program

In times of crisis, nonprofit and non-governmental organizations face lack of access to cash distribution networks. MoneyGram enables many organizations to leverage its global licensure and infrastructure to pay-out aid across MoneyGram's global network of over 430,000 retail locations in 200+ countries and territories.  

MoneyGram, Stellar Development Foundation, Circle and Vibrant collaborated to launch Stellar Aid Assist, a first-of-its-kind blockchain solution to deliver instant and transparent digital aid at scale. In Ukraine, the UN Refugee Agency and International Rescue Committee successfully piloted the solution to send digital aid via USDC stablecoin to Ukrainian’s mobile wallet, which can be cashed-out into local currency at over 4,500 MoneyGram locations in Ukraine once safe to do so.

MoneyGram stands as an industry leader in compliance with applicable laws and regulations relating to anti-money laundering (AML), terrorist financing, and consumer fraud prevention.

We are the only money transfer organization to require customer identification for every transaction, starting at $1 – a standard that’s well beyond the legal requirement and stricter than the industry standard.

Across MoneyGram’s regional offices, employees have created RED Teams to coordinate volunteer events in their communities. RED Teams also plan employee engagement activities and share highlights to strengthen connections with other MoneyGram offices around the world. 

MoneyGram encourages and supports its global network of employees who are making an impact in the communities where they live and work. We offer two community PTO days so that employees can give back in their local communities. 

Each year, MoneyGram celebrates International Volunteer Day by kicking off its Global Month of Service. Employees volunteer as a group, or individually, across the world, coming together as a global team to make an impact.

Inclusion and Belonging

We know that a company is no better than the employees who represent it. MoneyGram works to develop and promote strategies and practices which support and engage all stakeholders regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national origin, background or ability.

The Social Impact team hosts employee enrichment series to celebrate diversity, increase awareness and foster an atmosphere of equality and inclusion.
