Alexis de Tocqueville Society

Become more deeply involved in United Way's mission


United Way's Tocqueville Society is an opportunity for passionate individuals to make lasting change in the community. As a Tocqueville Society member, you join with others to create lasting change in community conditions. Together we can accomplish much more than any of us can on our own, because Change Doesn't Happen Alone.


Specifically the United Way Tocqueville Society aims to:

  • Change lives through philanthropic leadership focused on the building blocks for a better life: education, financial stability, and health.
  • Communicate the vital role of personal philanthropic action in creating lasting change.
  • Serve as role models in our community to mobilize caring power through giving.
  • Strengthen local United Way leadership by joining in a network of like-minded leaders across the globe.

As a Tocqueville Society Member you will have the opportunity to see our work in action, along with your family, through unique volunteer activities. Additionally, you will be able to enjoy many other exclusive benefits, including:
