Western Union And The Western Union Foundation Commit $500,000 For Education And Economic Development Programs Of The U.S.-Mexico Foundation

Western Union and The Western Union Foundation today announced a two-year grant commitment, supporting education and economic development programs offered through the U.S.-Mexico Foundation (USMF).

Western Union and The Western Union Foundation join a number of other important contributors to the USMF. The combined grant consists of $250,000 from The Western Union Foundation and $250,000 from The Western Union Company to support the USMF Educational Transformation Fund, providing high-impact educational opportunities to communities throughout Mexico, and the USMF Economic Opportunity Fund, which improves the economic opportunities for marginalized communities in Mexico. The total commitment of $500,000 supports USMF efforts to improve global access to quality education and economic opportunity.

“The Western Union Foundation is dedicated to creating a better world, where the ability to realize dreams through economic opportunity is not just a privilege for the few but a right for all. With the support of The Western Union Company, its employees and Agents, The Western Union Foundation works to realize this vision by supporting education as a pathway toward a better future through Western Union’s Education for Better program,” said Patrick Gaston, president, The Western Union Foundation.

“We are proud to work with the USMF to offer innovative, high-impact educational opportunities,” continued Gaston. “Research and our own experience shows that quality education is one of the surest pathways to prosperity. We have been impressed with the holistic approach USMF takes to issues surrounding education, and are confident that we can make a meaningful difference together.”

The U.S.-Mexico Foundation works to improve the relationship between the United States and Mexico by promoting broad social transformation in Mexico through strategic grant-making in the areas of education, economic development and civil society engagement. The USMF’s Educational Transformation Fund seeks to transform the education system in Mexico by strengthening teacher quality and teaching methodologies, and increase parental engagement and high-impact educational programs. The USMF’s Economic Opportunity Fund has a goal of improving the economic prospects of communities by enabling access to national and international markets for small producers, and increasing the employment prospects of at-risk populations through well-organized and sustainable workforce development programs.
