The Tocqueville Society is an exclusive group of United Way investors who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to improving our community through an annual gift of $10,000 or more. In 2021, 112 Tocqueville Society Members pledged $926,758 to help overcome community challenges in health, youth success and household stability.
As distinguished Tocqueville Society members, we often lead the way among our peers, colleagues and throughout the community in a number of ways, but especially in our generosity.
We are the fortunate ones in our community who can truly make a difference through not just generous—but transformational—giving.
You answered the call, when our community was in need and now United Way will be able to answer the call of hundreds of our neighbors facing challenges.
Thank you for stepping up!

The Tocqueville Society is named for French philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville, who in 1831 traveled all over the United States. One of his most significant observations about the American culture is their unique willingness to work for the public welfare and lend faithful support to their neighbors, especially in times of need.
The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation offer a generous matching grant of 50-cents for every dollar donated to United Way.
Becoming a Tocqueville Society member reveals a good deal about who you are. It shows others that you are dedicated to making a better world for others. It allows you to strengthen your own community. Start your journey today.
