Membership Groups

Your gift of $1,000 to $9,999 annually invites you to join United Way’s Constitution Society, a National Giving Society.

Who are our Constitution Society Members?

Constitution Society members are leading the way in making real, measurable impact on issues facing people locally. Members of this exclusive United Way Society come from diverse backgrounds and careers, using their generosity, time and talent to create real, lasting change in the lives of local adults, children and families. The Society connects people, along with their passions, to collectively make our region a better place.

Members of our local Tocqueville Society automatically become members of United Way Worldwide’s Tocqueville United, which is comprised of philanthropic leaders from throughout the United Way network, including not only the United States but also the world.

Why give directly to United Way?

In addition, those who give directly to United Way, make opportunities possible for children and families right here in our community. They understand and embrace the fact that there must be strategic solutions to our most complex challenges.

They recognize that no one organization or person can do it alone. It is through connecting people and passions they we’re able to make our region a better place.

How are Constitution Society Members Recognized?

As a Constitution Society Member, your name will be included in the Leadership Investors Roster. This is an online publication, which is published annually.
