The Tocqueville Society is a powerful group of philanthropic leaders who invest $10,000 or more annually in Routt County United Way. Members share a passion for investing in our community and making a difference – both personally and collectively.

The Routt County United Way Tocqueville Society is named after the French author Alexis de Tocqueville who, in the 1800s, traveled extensively throughout the United States and wrote Democracy in America, a detailed study of society and politics. Tocqueville recognized and applauded the American desire to take a personal role in the advancement of society by combining philanthropy and government service.

The observation on philanthropy made by Alexis de Tocqueville in 1831 is true today. Americans understand that advancing the common good means creating opportunities for a better life for all.
