Our Tocqueville Society is Miami at its very best – an influential group of 767 business, civic and philanthropic leaders who contributed nearly $15 million last year to improve people’s lives and our community.

Created in 1991 and named after French historian Alexis de Tocqueville who recognized, celebrated and immortalized the voluntary spirit that typifies America, the United Way of Miami-Dade Tocqueville Society brings together a distinguished group of like-minded individuals who share a keen devotion to this community and to its future generations.

Share the passion – personally and collectively – for building a stronger Miami. Join Tocqueville Society members by contributing $10,000 or more annually to United Way.

“One of the great lessons my parents taught me was to give back. I am proud of living in Miami, of the reputation we are building throughout the world, but with the beauty and all the positive things happening here, there are people falling through the cracks. We cannot have a strong community if we don’t first take care of our own people – and that’s where United Way plays such an important role. It’s one of the few organizations I know that touches so many people’s lives. ”
