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.
“My personal experience with United Way still drives my decision to stay involved, not only financially, but as a volunteer as well. Because United Way of Palm Beach County serves the local community, my gift can help those individuals, families and even neighbors in their times of need. I am honored to do my small part.”
– Brett Frazee
