The Tocqueville Society, named after philanthropist Alexis de Tocqueville pictured here, began 32 years ago with 22 inaugural members. Today, it has grown to nearly 250 members who make an annual commitment to help the region thrive. Your Tocqueville Society membership connects you with hundreds of the most influential community leaders in the region.

You can also Fast Track your gift to help you evolve your philanthropic goals as you continue to increase your giving level. When you take advantage of Fast Track, you will be fully recognized as a member of United Way's Tocqueville Society, invited to select events and listed as a leadership donor. Fast Track members give $5,000 in first year of membership, $7,500 in year two, and $10,000 in your third and final Fast Track year.
