Building a Legacy
Every social movement starts with leaders who have passion and drive to change a community. Our Tocqueville investors embody these traits.
Tocqueville is a group of distinguished, local visionaries who strive to make a difference in our community by investing $10,000 or more annually in the work of United Way of Cass-Clay. Their investments build a brighter and stronger future for our community. Their leadership inspires others to greater philanthropy.
These leaders set a high bar in philanthropic leadership in our community. When they share their experiences, abilities and ambitions, the result is a sphere of influence able to transform lives and help more people in our community have a path to thrive.
Currently, 400 United Way societies raise over $529 million dollars from nearly 25,000 individuals. These leaders share a global spirit of philanthropy and engage locally, nationally and globally to improve the lives of others.
Origin of The Namesake
Only 26 years old when he came to the United States and Canada in 1831, Alexis Charles-Henri de Tocqueville traveled extensively, recording his observations of life in the young nations.
Though he only spent nine months in North America, he gleaned many profound insights about American society. His observations, readings and discussions with eminent Americans formed the basis of Democracy in America, a detailed study of American society and politics published in two volumes, in 1835 and 1840.
The observations on philanthropy made by Alexis de Tocqueville in 1831 are true today; North Americans understand that advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all. The name Tocqueville Society was chosen because of Alexis de Tocqueville’s admiration for the spirit of voluntary association and effort toward its advancement.
United Way of Cass-Clay’s Tocqueville has had an active, local legacy for more than two decades.
- Loyal Supporter: $5,000
- Engaged Champion: $10,000
- Thoughtful Philanthropist: $15,000
- Visionary Leader: $25,000
- Legacy Pillar: $50,000 +
The Pathway to Becoming a Tocqueville Donor
Starting at $5,000 annually, investors who commit to increase their investment over a 3 or 5 year period can be a part of the step-up program and receive recognition as a Tocqueville member as they commit to the $10,000 giving level.
There is also a step-up program for Tocqueville investors who would like to give at the Visionary Leader level. Similarly, donors have the option to increase their investment over a 3 or 5 year period.
