Giving Societies

Leadership donors are among our most treasured supporters.

Each gift of $1,000 or more demonstrates a true commitment to helping our most vulnerable neighbors and strengthening our local communities through our United Way. It also serves as a compelling example of how leadership inspires others to step-up and give back, and makes a tangible, powerful difference in communities we serve in greater Philadelphia and southern New Jersey.

Million Dollar Roundtable

United Way’s Million Dollar Roundtable honors our most generous philanthropic leaders. Nationally, nearly 500 extraordinary leaders have made gifts of $1 million or more to local United Ways, driving Impact and transforming lives.

Tocqueville Society

The Tocqueville Society is named after 19th-century French diplomat Alexis de Tocqueville, who recognized, applauded and immortalized the distinct American voluntary spirit. Founded in 1984 by two of our own local leaders, Ambassador Walter Annenberg and John C. Haas, our regional Tocqueville Society is based on the premise that “Leaders Lead.”
