United Way of Broward County Tocqueville Society was established to deepen the understanding, commitment and support of our most generous and community-minded investors. In the spirit of the great philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville, and his admiration of voluntarism in America, United Way of America founded the Tocqueville Society in 1984.
The United Way of Broward County Tocqueville Society was founded in 1990 by community leaders Bob Elmore*, Wayne and Marti Huizenga, Bob and Millicent Steele*, and William* and Norma Horvitz. The local membership recognized in our Leaders in Giving book join 426 other Tocqueville Societies across the United States whose 26,000 members invested more than $514 million during the 2013-2014 campaign year.
Locally, as well as nationally, generous gifts from individual donors are what make it possible for us to improve lives, strengthen communities and partner with others to create long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place. These leaders in giving are our visionaries, our champions. They are people who advance the common good by funding initiatives that focus on the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family, and good health.
Membership in the Society is granted to individuals who give a minimum contribution of $10,000 annually to United Way of Broward County. Membership in United Way’s Million Dollar Roundtable is limited to individuals who have contributed $1,000,000 or more to the United Way cause. United Way of Broward County benefits from nine members in the Million Dollar Roundtable.
