United Way Tocqueville Society

An esteemed group of philanthropic leaders dedicated to tackling our community’s most pressing challenges.

Together, We Can

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.

Founded in 1999, the prestigious United Way Tocqueville Society is a national, philanthropic society honoring individuals who annually give $10,000 or more to United Way. 

Meet our Most Generous Philanthropists Here

The Society is named after the 19th century French political thinker and historian Alexis de Tocqueville who, in his writings, recognized the importance of voluntary action on behalf of the common good. The Society is dedicated to developing a stronger sense of community and connection among local philanthropists through engagement opportunities that grow awareness of issues and solutions affecting the well-being of children and families in our community and networking with like-minded individuals. 

Members of our local Tocqueville Society automatically become members of United Way Worldwide’s Tocqueville United, which is comprised of over 25,000 philanthropic leaders throughout the United States.
