The Tocqueville Society

Tocqueville Society logo

The Alexis de Tocqueville Society is comprised of those donors who give at a level of $10,000 or more annually.

Since the Tocqueville Society was first founded in 1987, they have been championing the work of United Way, giving to those who need it most and encouraging others to do the same. It’s because of their generosity that to date, more than $124 million in Tocqueville donations have been invested back into our community.

Thanks to the leadership of our 2022-23 Campaign Chairs, Terri and Tim Burke, UWM surpassed Mr. Warren Buffett’s Tocqueville Membership Challenge – reaching a record 403 members and increasing his generous match of United Way of the Midlands’ campaign to 10%. We are truly grateful to Mr. Buffett, as this remarkable achievement resulted in an additional $367,000 being invested in our community.

Members of the Society are recognized for their level of giving with the following designations:

Buffett Match: A Momentous Achievement

Thanks to generosity of so many, we reached a tremendous milestone -Tocqueville Society membership reached 373. As a result of this achievement, Mr. Warren Buffett increased his match of the total campaign dollars raised, and hundreds of thousands of additional dollars were invested into our community.
