The Tocqueville Society


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. Thank you to all of these individuals who have made such a difference in their local community! 

The Tocqueville Society is a nationally recognized society. Currently there are over 398 local Tocqueville Societies in communities across the United States. Last year, those 398 societies raised over $400 million from over 20,000 individuals nationwide.
