Tocqueville Society

Since 1987, the United Way Tocqueville Society has recognized leaders who believe, deeply, in our community and in living united.

Through their generosity they are committing to positive change now and in the future by enabling United Way NCA to build capacity in our member nonprofits and with our direct services programming in health, education, and personal finances. The Tocqueville Society is comprised of leading philanthropists who understand the value of a major investment in our community, especially when directed and leveraged. Tocqueville Society philanthropists achieve the goal through leading an annual, signature volunteer event that engages our community, by giving personally, and by sharing the opportunity to invest among peers and colleagues.
