Leadership Giving


Big Sky Leadership Club

The Big Sky Leadership Club is a recognition society at United Way for donors who give $1,000 or more annually.

Tocqueville Society

The UWYC Tocqueville Society recognizes local philanthropic leaders and volunteer champions who have devoted time, talent, and funds to create long-lasting changes by tackling our communities’ most serious issues.

Renowned French political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville admired three elements in North American society: liberty, equality and the spirit of neighbor helping neighbor. Tocqueville believed that by achieving these elements of democracy, all people would choose to pursue freedom, knowledge and prosperity.

Since 1984 over $9 billion has been contributed by Tocqueville members. Membership in the Society is granted to individuals who contribute at least $10,000 annually to United Way. National Society Membership is granted to individuals who contribute $100,000 or more per year to the United Way. Partnership with the United Way’s Million Dollar Roundtable is limited to individuals who have contributed $1,000,000 or more to the United Way mission and impact work.

Exclusive Opportunities

Big Sky Leadership Club and Tocqueville Society members are invited to exclusive events annually to deepen their knowledge of the impact their generous donations have on the UWYC Mission and our community at large.
