Tocqueville Society

The Alexis de Tocqueville Society, now known as The Tocqueville Society, was created by United Way of America in 1972. The Tocqueville Society of the River Region United Way was formed in 1984 to deepen individual understanding of, commitment to, and support of United Way’s work: advancing the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. This unique society recognizes people who have rendered outstanding voluntary service in their communities and contribute significant annual gifts to the River Region United Way.

The Society's name was chosen because of the 19th century French diplomat Alexis de Tocqueville's admiration for the spirit of voluntary association and voluntary effort for the common good - a spirit he had observed in America and about which he wrote enthusiastically. The Tocqueville Society of the River Region United Way is grateful for the generosity of its members and recognizes their deep commitment to philanthropy and community service.
