It's All About Family Connection: LINC Partners with MoneyGram/Visa to Bring Families Closer

Literacy Inc. (LINC) is thrilled to announce a new partnership with sponsors, MoneyGram/Visa, to help them promote a fast, safe, and convenient way to transfer funds to loved ones around the world.

When you send funds with MoneyGram and use the Visa Debit Card Deposit receive option, MoneyGram will move your money through Visa’s global network in real time and funds will arrive in your recipient’s account in *30 minutes or less (*dependent on receiving financial institution and region). It’s simple, efficient, and, best of all, your family and friends don’t have to wait in line to get their money because it will post to their bank balance automatically.

LINC is happy to support MoneyGram/Visa and share this initiative with our families. As we link parents, caregivers and community members with resources to help them raise young readers, we are grateful for this technology that will bring them closer to their family members abroad.

By sponsoring key events in Washington Heights and Inwood from December through February, MoneyGram/Visa have the opportunity to meet and engage with LINC families to build brand awareness about their products and services. From a Parent Teacher Association meeting at Public School 189 to a Winter Wonderland reading celebration at the Dyckman Houses NYCHA development, MoneyGram/VISA have already helped LINC unlock resources and opportunities for the families we serve.
