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. 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.
Meet Our Tocqueville Cabinet Chair: Donna Glenn
“I have been involved with United Way my entire career and given through corporate campaigns. As a leader at NCCI I donate through our campaign and hope to inspire others to give as well. I want to help those that want to be helped, and I think United Way helps direct funds across the multitude of community needs. It provides me with a broader reach for every dollar I donate.”
– Donna Glenn
