What is Tocqueville?
Worldwide society


 Renowned French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville admired three elements in North American society: liberty, equality and the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. These same elements are embraced in the French national motto: “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.” Tocqueville believed that by achieving these elements of democracy, all people would choose to pursue freedom, knowledge and prosperity, or indépendance, connaissance, and prospérité.

Today over 25,000 Tocqueville members strong, since 1984 over $9 billion has been contributed by Tocqueville members. Membership in the Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000 annually to United Way. National Society Membership is granted to individuals who contribute $100,000 or more per year to the United Way. 

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 United Signature Series begins September 10, and will run throughout the year.
