United Way of the Black Hills falls short of fundraising goal- reaching 96% of goal

UWBH Turns Funding Shortfall into an Opportunity

The United Way of the Black Hills 2018 fundraising campaign came up a little short, reaching 96 percent of their 2.3-million-dollar goal.

Donations help support 34 provider agencies that are focused on health and human service needs in the Rapid City area.

The donations will be allocated to 51 local non-profit agencies in the Black Hills during 2019 and help over 100,000 people in total throughout the year.

Jamie Toennies, Executive Director of the United Way of the Black Hills, says, “We are a little shy of our goal, we raised 96 percent, but these dollars are going to make a huge impact in to the non- profit community and to the citizens living here in the Black Hills Region.”

The organization hopes to further enhance their campaign to reach more donors and increase the funds raised in the future.
