Over the last couple of months, current and prospective Tocqueville members held annual campaign kickoff events that highlight our work across the region, progress made and goals for the future. As they prepare to celebrate their 30th anniversary next year, Tocqueville Society members are actively recruiting new members to join them in their philanthropic work.
