EAF remains dedicated to shortening the time between grant award and payment. As we continue to improve our processes, we are pleased to share that we are now making all non-U.S. grant payments through Western Union. EAF has long partnered with Western Union, and we have found that it provides broader global reach, lower bank rejection rates, and increased visibility compared to other non-U.S. grant payment methods. With Western Union, EAF can supply Grantees with more information about the status of their payment once it is in process.

The grant payment process remains simple for non-U.S. Grantees. As detailed in the grant award letter sent to them from EAF, they will receive an email about their grant payment from EAF’s Western Union email address (WesternUnion@EmergencyAssistanceFdn.org). The email will link to a landing page where the Grantee can provide their banking information by completing a secure form. As always, if the Grantee does not have a bank account, they will be able to collect payment in person at a Western Union Retail location by completing an alternate form, which is linked to on the landing page.

If you have any questions about our non-U.S. grant payment processes, please do not hesitate to reach out.
