Countries the US sends the most money to around the world

American roots are joined to family and friends who dot the world. So are our wallets — to the tune of $135 billion a year.

The melting pot. A salad bowl. Whatever you call it, the United States is home to overlapping cultures and colorful traditions. Nearly 240 years old and more than 300 languages strong, here you can celebrate Oktoberfest in the South, Diwali in the Northeast and the Chinese New Year in the Midwest.

With so many connections around the world, it’s no surprise that Americans are sending their hard-earned cash to neighboring nations and those further flung. Supporting relatives in home countries. Wiring funds to children studying abroad. Funding business in global markets.
