The extraordinary generosity of the Tocqueville Society

The Tocqueville Society recognizes individuals and couples who have stood with us, sharing their talent and treasure to set a high bar in philanthropic leadership for our community. This group of investors is creating change and setting an example for others to follow. When you integrate our members’ experiences, abilities and ambitions, the result is a sphere of influence able to transform our community and help more people stand on their own two feet.

Since its establishment locally in 1990, Metro United Way’s Tocqueville Society members have invested over $100 million representing the generosity of over 300 families throughout our regional community.
