TOCQUEVILLE SOCIETY

Tocqueville Society

Answer the call to "Rise United."

United Way Quad Cities’ Tocqueville Society is a group of change-makers with an unsurpassed dedication to creating lasting change in our community.

Together, we are civic and business leaders who are passionate about United Way’s work to improve education, income and health — the building blocks of opportunity — for all Quad Citizens.

Contribute to a thriving Quad Cities.

Let’s unite to create a profound impact.

Tocqueville Society Members’ investments improve lives right here in our community. And their generosity is amplified through a collective impact process that unites our community around solving our toughest challenges.

Tocqueville Members are generous donors of $10,000 or more, who have a profound impact on our community. Their extraordinary generosity powers the work needed for even more Quad Cities students to graduate prepared for success in college or career, more local families to achieve financial stability and more neighbors to enjoy healthy, fulfilling lives.
