Join the Tocqueville Society

The Tocqueville Society of United Way of the Midlands was established in 1988 by twelve charter members whose vision and belief in the community spurred others to join and give. Today, the Tocqueville Society has more than 250 members and has notably raised $100 million since its inception. This investment has led to the delivery of more than 1.9 million vital community services to help those in need across the Omaha-Council Bluffs metro area.

For nearly 96 years, United Way donors have provided critical funding to help our neighbors meet their most basic of needs including access to healthy food, medical care, safe and affordable housing and academic supports, with the ultimate goal of helping families achieve long-term financial stability. The dedicated and passionate leaders of the Tocqueville Society champion this important work, knowing that we all have a stake in the strengthening of our community.

A Special Thank You to our Tocqueville Society Charter Members

We have great admiration for those who founded this group back in 1988.  We would like to extend our most sincere thank you to the charter members of Omaha’s Tocqueville Society and recognize not only their philanthropic commitment, but their great foresight.
