Leadership Givers have a deep commitment to helping people. More than 2,500 local people make an annual investment of $500 or more into our community through United Way. The energy, excitement and enthusiasm of these generous individuals inspires others and infuses hope into those who need it most.
Leadership Giving Societies
United Way has a way for everyone to get involved. Each affinity group offers unique programs and events tailored to that Society. As a Leadership Giver, you can be as involved as you want in the Societies that fit you best. Whether you're involved a little or a lot, thank you for your generous commitment to our community through United Way’s leadership giving.

Representing the highest level among our Leaders in Giving, the Tocqueville Society encourages and recognizes the spirit of exceptional giving.
The Society is named for the young French aristocrat, Alexis de Tocqueville, who during his travels to America in 1831 noted the "great good will" of neighbor helping neighbor. Through his inspirational book titled Democracy in America he applauded and immortalized this voluntary goodwill that lives in the hearts of Americans.
