The Tocqueville Society, named for the historian Alexis de Tocqueville, represents United Way of Central Indiana’s most generous contributors – those who give $10,000 or more each year. Tocqueville membership offers an unrivaled opportunity to connect with other community leaders. These leaders see the value in helping United Way maintain a human services network that addresses today’s needs, while also supporting programs that focus on kids’ success in school and beyond, thereby reducing needs for the future.
Tocqueville members who contribute $25,000 or more are recognized as members of the Meridian Society.
Vision and possibilities
United Way's diverse array of strategic programs, services and agencies are accountable for results, making United Way the most effective choice for your philanthropic investment.
In addition to knowing that your gift is achieving the greatest impact, Tocqueville Society members enjoy special benefits, including unique social and cultural events (see recent event photos), networking opportunities and community recognition.
United Way of Central Indiana offers the 3-year Tocqueville Society Step-up plan for those who wish to gradually increase their contributions to the Tocqueville Society level.
Step-up contributors are considered full Tocqueville members at the point of their initial contribution and 3-year pledge, and are immediately eligible for all membership benefits and events, including members-only luncheons, networking opportunities and recognition in our widely-distributed Community Leaders Book.
Lilly Endowment, Inc. is matching up to $1.5 million in new and increased giving this year, including Tocqueville-level gifts. Don’t miss this opportunity to double the impact of your philanthropic contribution!
* Note: Initial gift must be $5,000 or greater than last year’s contribution, whichever amount is higher.
Note: Membership is limited to those who contribute $10,000 or more to support United Way of Central Indiana and/or its agencies. Designations to non-United Way agencies will not count toward membership.
