Tocqueville Society

The Alexis de Tocqueville Society is comprised of community leaders who make an annual gift of $10,000 or more to United Way, setting an extraordinary example of generosity and philanthropic leadership for others to follow.

Unifying the philanthropic efforts of these community leaders, the Society is named after Alexis de Tocqueville, a 19th-century French aristocrat who praised this country's "spirit of volunteerism" and philanthropy in his 1835 book, Democracy in America

Never lose sight of the close connection between the private fortune of each and the prosperity of all.
             - Alexis de Tocqueville
