The Tocqueville Tuesday series is one of many signature events where members enjoy meeting other philanthropic leaders.
Each exclusive event is designed to give members an engaging, up-close look at how your investment changes lives in our community. When Tocqueville members meet, they create a powerful force of good.
Below is a recap of each Tocqueville Tuesday event in 2023.
TOPIC: UNITED WAY’S APPROACH TO ACCELERATING COMMUNITY RECOVERY
CINCINNATI (Sept. 5, 2023) — United Way President and CEO Moira Weir and Board Chair Barbara Turner spoke to Tocqueville members about our community’s conditions regarding early education, housing stability and financial empowerment, noting the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on those areas.
Barbara shared, “The data is simultaneously unsurprising and sobering. The last three years have hit our community hard; families especially face an uphill battle. United Way stands ready and determined to get [our community] back on track, but we cannot do it alone. I ask you to reflect on how you can help us grow that base of support.”
TOPIC: HOUSING AND FAMILY STABILITY

Panelists Alisa Berry, Philip Denning, Rachel Hastings and Bobby Maly said collaborative efforts are required to address housing issues and bring stability to families. They noted that systemic changes must be and are being made.
