Channeling Influence into Action

Tocqueville members are a generous group of successful, philanthropic leaders who support United Way and our community at an outstanding level. They are some of our region’s most influential business and civic leaders who are a making difference in the lives of people who need it most.  

Inspired by Alexis de Tocqueville, a French political philosopher who famously admired American philanthropy, United Way’s Tocqueville supporters embody the same generous American spirit that Tocqueville fell in love with nearly 200 years ago.
