Download our Pillar Brochure which recognizes the following individuals.



Tocqueville Society


The Society honors Alexis de Tocqueville, an early visitor to the United States and author of “Democracy in America”.


He recognized, applauded and immortalized American voluntary action on behalf of the common good. He wrote: “I must say that I have seen Americans make a great deal of real sacrifices to the public welfare; and have noticed a hundred instances in which they hardly ever failed to lend a faithful support to one another.” Americans understand that advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all.


The River Cities United Way Tocqueville Society recognizes donors who contribute $10,000 or more annually to improve people’s lives and strengthen our community.
