Tocqueville Society

A Worldwide Society Committed to Philanthropy

Gain entry into United Way’s most prestigious giving level. Membership in the Tocqueville Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000 annually to United Way. This level identifies those in our community who made a leadership gift and establishes for them a worldwide partnership with Tocqueville members. This is the only society level that is recognized by every United Way across the globe. United Way Worldwide engages members from across the globe through virtual events, recognition and promotion of Tocqueville honorees, conferences, collective impact, LinkedIn connections and more.  

The Tocqueville Step-Up Program provides you the opportunity to achieve your long-term giving objectives while accessing Tocqueville membership benefits immediately. Through  this approach, you commit to incremental increases of your donations over the course of three years, reaching your goal investment by year three.
