Societies & Groups

When people engage with United Way, they bring their passion, skills and vision to our efforts, focusing their sights on the greater good. Together, we can accomplish far more. All of us bring our unique perspective, experience and enthusiasm to the cause, and that diversity is the wellspring of innovative solutions we need to affect positive change on a large scale.

We invite everyone to be part of the change in your community. Whether it's women, students, young professionals, or major donors -- our groups are just one more way for you to explore the "United Way experience." 

The United Way Alexis de Tocqueville Society, initiated in March 1984, is designed to deepen the understanding, commitment and support of individuals to United Ways and to recognize the deep commitment to service. Membership in the Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000 annually to the United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties.

The Tocqueville Society is a nationally recognized society. Currently, over 400 societies raise over $529 million dollars from nearly 25,000 individuals annually.  These leaders share a spirit of philanthropy and engage locally to improve the lives of others.
