The Tocqueville Society was established in 1987 in order to foster, promote, and recognize voluntary community service and personal giving.  

Tocqueville Society is named for French aristocrat Alexis-Charles-Henri Clerel de Tocqueville, who came to America in 1831. He lauded the spirit of voluntary action characteristic of Americans.

Step Up Program

Members of the Tocqueville Society may participate in the “Step-Up” membership plan offered by Tulsa Area United Way.

The Step-Up Program is designed for individuals who annually contribute and encourages a multi-year commitment to achieve the Tocqueville status level.

The Step-Up Program requires a minimum personal pledge of $5,000 to the current campaign, with a pledge to step-up personal giving to $7,500 to the next campaign, and to $10,000 by the following campaign.

Step-Up participants will receive full Tocqueville Society recognition and benefits in the $10,000 to $14,999 category starting with their first pledge of $5,000.
