The following companies have made contributions specifically to cover the costs of events and activities related to the Tocqueville Society. Their gifts help us bring our members together to thank them, and to facilitate conversations about philanthropy and impact in our community. We are very grateful for the support of these generous sponsors:
"In towns it is impossible to prevent men from assembling, getting excited together and forming sudden passionate resolves. Towns are like great meeting houses with all the inhabitants as members. In them the people wield immense influence over their magistrates and often carry their desires into execution without intermediaries."
-Alexis de Tocqueville “Democracy in America”, 1831
The Society holds a number of events each year. They offer unique opportunities to connect with a like-minded assembly of Society leaders. These events include:
- An annual appreciation event. In June of 2017 we thanked our Society members with a rooftop reception at the new Hotel Chaco.
- A fall event combines members and prospects who invest a minimum of $2,500 in the work of UWCNM. October 2017 featured a reception to celebrate Culture and Impact at the Hiland Theater.
- “Tocqueville Tuesdays,” a learning conversation series, features nonprofits in our community that are receiving a UWCNM Grant and working in a collaborative effort to make positive impact and change.
As a Tocqueville Society donor, you will receive invitations to these events. We hope you will be able to join us, as the conversations that take place have energized Society members for over twenty years.
