United Way of Greater Toledo Tocqueville Society members are committed leaders, determined to change our community’s story. When you become a Tocqueville Society donor, you join an exclusive group of influential and philanthropic minds who prioritize investing in long-term positive community change.
Our name was chosen to celebrate Alexis Charles-Henri de Tocqueville’s admiration for our nation’s spirit of volunteerism. In the late 1830s, after traveling North America, Alexis de Tocqueville published studies on American society and politics, noting that Americans implicitly “understand that advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all.” Our Tocqueville members do just that. Your extraordinary gifts advance the common good and drive lasting change in Lucas, Ottawa and Wood counties.
