The United Way Tocqueville Society was formed in March of 1984 to deepen individual understanding of, commitment to, and support of United Way’s work: advancing the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. The Tocqueville Society recognizes local philanthropic leaders and volunteer champions around the world who have devoted time, talent, and funds to create long-lasting changes by tackling our communities’ most serious issues.
Membership in the Tocqueville Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000.00 annually to a member United Way.
Specifically, the United Way Tocqueville Society aims to:
- Change lives through philanthropic leadership by focusing on the building blocks for a better life: a quality education that leads to a stable job; income that can support a family through retirement, and good health
- Communicate the vital role of personal philanthropic action in creating long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of societal problems
- Enhance local recognition of long-standing service volunteers
- Foster philanthropic action and voluntary community service
- Expand high-level personal giving and United Way Major and Planned Giving programs of a high standard
- Strengthen local leadership development and Major Giving efforts by building upon cross-geographical linkages
- Prominently position the Tocqueville Society name and the United Way brand in an effort to stimulate the exchange of philanthropic ideas while maintaining a positive national quality image
