Alexis De Tocqueville Society

The Alexis De Toqueville Society

The Alexis de Tocqueville Society, initiated nationally by United Way of America in March, 1984, is designed to deepen the understanding, commitment and support of individuals to United Ways and to recognize the deep commitment to service. Membership in the Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000 annually to the United Way. The name of the Society was chosen because of Tocqueville's admiration for the American spirit of voluntary association and voluntary effort for the community good. For more information contact the Monadnock United Way office at (603) 352-4209 or visit the Tocqueville website.

Specific local benefits differ from society to society, but, in general, all Tocqueville Society members benefit from:

  • Joining a local and national group of major leaders who are providing today's philanthropic leadership locally/nationally and improving the quality of life.
  • Giving through a quality organization to assure dollars are spent efficiently and where it will have the most impact.
  • Working and meeting with the community's business and civic leaders to make the social infrastructure of today and build the future of tomorrow.


  • All members of the Tocqueville Society may be listed in the National Tocqueville Leadership Recognition Book.
  • Special recognition is given to those members who give $100,000 or more to their local United Way by becoming members of the National Society or Million Dollar Roundtable. Members of the National Society and Million Dollar Roundtable are featured in the leadership book with their picture and biography.
  • Local Tocqueville Society leaders, along with National Society and Million Dollar Roundtable members, are invited to attend the annual Tocqueville Leaders Weekend.

"I must say that I have seen Americans make a great and real sacrifice to the public welfare; and have noticed a hundred instances in which they hardly ever failed to lend faithful support to one another."
