Tocqueville Society


United Way of Palm Beach County’s Tocqueville Society is named after French Author Alexis de Tocqueville who traveled extensively through the United States in the 1800’s and wrote Democracy in America. De Tocqueville recognized and applauded the American desire to take a personal role in the advancement of society by combining philanthropy and service.

EXCEPTIONAL INDIVIDUALS CHANGING LIVES AND TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES

Today, De Tocqueville’s observations live on through United Way of Palm Beach County’s Tocqueville Society.  For more than 20 years, UWPBC’s Tocqueville Society has served as one of our community’s most prestigious and effective philanthropic organizations. With a minimum investment of $10,000 annually, society members are philanthropic leaders who believe being surrounded by like-minded investors is the best way to collectively tackle some of Palm Beach County’s biggest issues.
