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.
Today, De Tocqueville’s observations live on through United Way of Palm Beach County’s Tocqueville Society. For more than 20 years, 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.
United Way of Palm Beach County offers a unique giving option that allows community leaders to step up to the $10,000 annual giving minimum by gradually moving to that level over three years. Step-up donors are recognized as members of The Tocqueville Society from the very first year and receive full member benefits including invitations to exclusive events and recognition as a $10,000 donor in society directories and newsletters. Minimum yearly contributions are outlined below:
Michael Dunn, Wells Fargo, Tocqueville Chair
Art Menor, Esq., Shutts & Bowen
Heather Nisbeth, Ernst & Young
Steve Demeritt, General Mills (retired)
George Elmore, Hardrives
Jon Levinson, REL Enterprises
