Tocqueville Society members join a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to helping create sustainable change in our region.

Tocqueville Founders


United Way Tocqueville Society donors provide support to thousands of individuals who need help and connect with others who share their passion.

Tocqueville Society of Greater Atlanta recognizes local philanthropic leaders and volunteer champions who devote their funds and talents to creating sustainable change by tackling our community’s most pressing problems.

The United Way Tocqueville Society was formed in March of 1984. One year later, Howell Adams, the inaugural chair, brought the Tocqueville Society to Atlanta.


This exclusive club is reserved for the most generous of givers to deepen individual understanding of, commitment to and support for United Way’s work: improving the lives of residents so that we build a stronger community for us all.

Membership Level: Annual donations between $10,000-$24,999
