Alexis de Tocqueville Society

Alexis de Tocqueville portrait

Individuals who give an annual gift of $10,000 or more to Sioux Empire United Way are recognized as Alexis de Tocqueville Society members.

Sioux Empire United Way’s Alexis de Tocqueville Society was founded in 1997 by T. Denny Sanford.  The society is named after a French aristocrat and author, Alexis de Tocqueville, who wrote, “When an American asks for the cooperation of his fellow citizens, it is seldom refused; and I have often seen it afforded spontaneously and with great good will.”  We are fortunate to have citizens such as these in the Sioux Empire.

Sioux Empire United Way is proud to have 115 members in the Alexis de Tocqueville Society. Our local members are also recognized on a national level with membership in the National Alexis de Tocqueville Leadership Society.
