In 2018 the United Way of Comal County saw a community that continued to be proactive in providing outstanding support in a time of continuous growth, the closure to the 2017-2018 Allocationcycle, and the beginning of the 2018-2019 Allocation cycle. During the last half of the year, the UWCC funded 30 nonprofits throughoutComal County.
The state of the economy continued to have an impact on both fundraising and requests for funds. Nonetheless, donations from our residents who live within Comal County but commute to SanAntonio for employment grew as did support from various national accounts and individual donors. The 2017 campaign raised$976,626 not reaching the
$1M goal. The Board agreed to set the 2018 campaign goal again at $1M and implemented new marketing strategies that included contract marketing assistance.
