Tocqueville Society

United Way's Tocqueville Society was formed in 1996 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.

The Tocqueville Society recognizes local philanthropic leaders and volunteer champions around the world who have devoted time, talent, and funds to create long-lasting changes by tackling our community's most serious issues. Specifically, the United Way Tocqueville Society aims to change lives through:

  • Philanthropic leadership by focusing on the building blocks for a better life
  • A quality education that leads to a stable job
  • Income that can support a family through retirement, and good health

Dedication, commitment and compassion are attributes of the Tocqueville Society members. The Escambia County chapter of the Tocqueville Society was established during the 1996 Campaign with six charter members. The members of this society present United Way of Escambia County with an
 annual gift of $10,000 or greater. Members are listed in a nationally distributed Tocqueville Society publication.
