Tocqueville Society

Tocqueville Society members are philanthropists who demonstrate extraordinary generosity to our community by investing $10,000 or more annually. These individuals and couples make an outstanding commitment to improving the quality of life in our community. Members are recognized locally and nationally for their commitment and for inspiring others to greater philanthropy.

Created in 1984, there are nearly 27,000 Tocqueville members across the country who collectively gave $556M in the last year. Since 1990, Tocqueville donors have given $7.7B to United Way, making a lasting impact in the communities in which they live. At United Way of Southern Nevada, our Tocqueville donors gave almost $1.5M in 2015-2016. In a time when the need is so great, the leaders among us rise up with renewed willingness to tackle the biggest challenges—they are United Way’s Tocqueville Society members, the cornerstone of United Way. 

Please remember United Way of Southern Nevada in your will or estate plans and share with us when you do. To find out how you can become a Tocqueville Society member, contact Nelson Araujo, Senior Director, Tocqueville Society & Major Gifts at or 702-892-2346.
