Tocqueville Society


Tocqueville Members

Since 1986, the members of United Way of Greater Kansas City’s Tocqueville Society have created an unmatched legacy of leadership, caring and commitment. The Tocqueville Society brings together more than 400 of our community’s most trusted and influential leaders, united in building a stronger community for all.


The Tocqueville Society was  brought to Kansas City by Adele Hall, former United Way Board Chair, and Gordan Beaham. Thanks to the impactTocqueville Members 3 made by our Tocqueville Society members, thousands of Kansas Citians have the opportunity to achieve their full potential through quality education, financial stability, healthy lives and safe neighborhoods.

Tocqueville Society, our community’s premier philanthropic society, honors those leaders whose annual contribution to United Way of $10,000 or more creates lasting community change.
