Alexis de Tocqueville Society

Founded in 1984, the United Way Tocqueville Society is an opportunity for passionate individuals to become more deeply involved in United Way’s mission.

The Tocqueville Society recognizes local philanthropic leaders and volunteer champions who have devoted time, talent, and funds to create long-lasting changes by tackling our communities’ most serious issues.

Specifically, the United Way Tocqueville Society aims to:

  • Change lives through philanthropic leadership focused on the building blocks for a better life: a quality education that leads to a stable     job; income that can support a family through retirement, and good health.
  • Communicate the vital role of personal philanthropic action in creating long-lasting changes.
  • Expand high-level personal giving and United Way Major and Planned Giving programs.
  • Strengthen local United Way leadership by building a network of like-minded leaders across the globe.

Globally, 430 United Way Tocqueville Societies raise over $556 million dollars from nearly 27,000 individuals annually.

Our local Tocqueville Society includes 230 donors who give at least $10,000 each year to United Way, including our Major Donors (annual contribution of $25,000 or more) and our Directors Circle ($15,000 to $24,999). To see the most recent Society list, please click here.
