The Tocqueville Society was named in celebration of the vision of French historian Alexis de Tocqueville, who was recognized as a symbol of the true spirit of volunteerism that lives in America's heart.

Members of the United Way Tocqueville Society, more than 27,000 across all United Ways in the country, give more than $10,000 or more annually. Members of the Tocqueville Society affirm their leadership and deep level of commitment to the betterment of our community.
