Tocqueville Society

The Tocqueville Society, named in celebration of the visionary French historian Alexis de Tocqueville, symbolizes the true spirit of volunteerism ingrained in America’s heart. Members embody this spirit of philanthropy at its most generous level.

Established in 1984, the United Way Tocqueville Society offers passionate individuals an opportunity to become more deeply involved in United Way’s mission, recognizing 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.

Since 1990, over 27,000 Tocqueville donors have contributed $7.7 billion to United Way, leaving a lasting impact on their communities. By joining the Tocqueville Society, you affirm your leadership and profound commitment to community betterment.
