United Way fundraising already bringing in big bucks for local non-profits

Posted:

The United Way yearly fundraiser is less than half over, but they are already seeing the money come in.
 
The United Way's goal for this year is to raise nearly $2.3 million dollars. That money will help benefit 52 non-profit organizations in the Black Hills area.

As of this week they have raised 30 percent of their goal with nearly $880,000.

The 2-1-1 help line is one non profit that benefits from the United Way's assistance.

The help line is a referral service for people to get many kinds of assistance, whether it be childcare, government or financial assistance, and much more.

"It's critical, that's a big part of our budget, it is a good foundation, we do receive funding from various other sources," says Kasondra Brooke, Resource Development Director for the 2-1-1 Help line.
 
The 2-1-1 help line received more than $23,000 from the United Way last year, and more than $150,000 since it began in 2006.
