Tocqueville Society

 

“As soon as individuals with a cause have found one another out, they combine. From that moment, they are no longer isolated people, but a power seen from afar, whose actions serve for an example and whose language is listened to." 
 
Tocqueville Society recognizes visionary leaders who have committed themselves to making our community a better place for all its residents. Membership is available to individuals who contribute $10,000 or more annually.
