The United Way Suncoast Tocqueville Society is an esteemed group of business, community, and philanthropic leaders dedicated to tackling our community’s most pressing challenges. Our members understand how generosity today impacts the generations of tomorrow.  Membership includes individuals, households and foundations who contribute $10,000 a year or more to United Way. A $100,000 gift grants a donor membership in the National Tocqueville Society, and the Million Dollar Roundtable includes donors who contribute $1,000,000 or more to United Way within any five-year period. 


The namesake of the Tocqueville Society, Alexis de Tocqueville, admired three aspects of American life that continue to define our society: Liberty, equality and the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. Today, members of United Way’s Tocqueville Society exemplify that philanthropic spirit that so impressed the young Alexis de Tocqueville when he first visited the United States.

We know leadership giving has a broader impact on our community, leaving a far-reaching legacy. By joining Tocqueville Society, you can influence meaningful change and create opportunities for all, starting with empowering youth to be successful in school and in life.

By joining the Tocqueville Society, members become part of a committed group of civic-minded leaders who care about making a positive difference in our community. Tocqueville Society members receive special communications and have opportunities to network with business and community leaders, colleagues, other philanthropists, and friends by participating in informational and social events.
