Benefits of Belonging
United Way of Central Maryland established the Tocqueville Society in 1987 to honor those individuals who have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to philanthropy through their passion for investing in the community and making a difference – personally and collectively. The Tocqueville Society was named in celebration of the vision of French historian Alexis de Tocqueville, who was recognized as a symbol of the true spirit of volunteerism that lives in America's heart.
Members of our Tocqueville Society give $10,000 or more annually. Currently, we have close to 400 Tocqueville members that contribute approximately $6.3 million on an annual basis.
When you join the Tocqueville Society you are affirming your leadership and deep level of commitment to the betterment of our community. These are several giving levels within the Tocqueville Society.
