Who We Are

The MoneyGram Foundation was established by MoneyGram International in 2013. Inspired by MoneyGram's 80-year history of providing a global financial services network used by millions around the world to secure life's essentials for their families, the Foundation seeks to make an impact in the communities of our customers, employees and agents through charitable grants that address financial literacy and workforce development/job readiness.

We believe access to financial tools and services, as well as knowledge on how to improve one's own financial health, is at the heart of better economic opportunities, individual freedom and empowerment, and stronger communities.
