Tocqueville Society


United Way offers a unique opportunity for investors who give $1,000,000 or more over a period of one to five years to be recognized as a permanent member of the Tocqueville Society Million Dollar Roundtable. In addition to opportunities for national recognition, learning, and networking, Million Dollar Roundtable members receive an individualized update on the status of their investment with United Way.

Million dollar gifts may be directed to a specific purpose that matches the investor’s priorities or to the United Way endowment fund to help perpetuate United Way’s impact into the future. Investments may be outright gifts of cash, stock, or other property; they may also be deferred gifts such as life insurance, trusts, or annuities. 

United Way of Lancaster County recognizes Elva Boyd Wilson as the first local Million Dollar Roundtable member. Her investment in United Way has focused on Financial Stability and creating opportunities for those in poverty to overcome barriers.


The Tocqueville Society is a very special group of committed philanthropists around the world who invest at least $10,000 annually in their United Ways. Historically these members are among United Way’s most longstanding and engaged partners.

United Way of Lancaster County founded its Society in 1993 to afford leading, local contributors a vehicle to deepen their understanding of our community’s needs and connect with United Way’s most generous contributors to make change happen in Lancaster County. United Way of Lancaster County’s Tocqueville Society includes more than 70 members who invest nearly $1 million annually in this community.
