The Alexis de Tocqueville Society is a national group of community leaders who choose to give $10,000 or more each year to their local United Way. This national group meets annually at some venue in the country to explore how it can help United Way locally accomplish its goals. As a Tocqueville member, you become a civic leader who has come together to actively influence the vision of a stronger, healthier community. Your involvement with United Way—from your knowledge, ideas and energy to your financial support—has never been more critical.
The Society was named after Alexis de Tocqueville, who was only 26 years old in 1831 when he traveled throughout the United States and wrote Democracy in America based on his observations. He wrote about his admiration for the American spirit of voluntary action to create change in our community. United Way’s Tocqueville Society was created to honor the goodwill and community leadership inspired by de Tocqueville’s writings. Learn more about the national Tocqueville Society.
Tocqueville leaders meet several times a year to recognize members of the community who are impacting our area in the same fashion that so enamored Alexis. It is also not unusual for twenty of the Tocqueville Society to gather annually to prospect for the benefit of the society and for the United Way.
