Leadership Giving Matters
People who give become a part of the fabric of change. They experience enthusiasm in their relationship with their communities and each other. Giving connects us with the very basic experience of people helping people.
Membership in the Tocqueville Society is extended to those individuals or couples whose combined annual United Way contribution is $10,000 or more.
Women’s Leadership Circle
Women’s Leadership Circle members contribute an annual investment of $1000 or more as an individual or $1500 or more when combined with their spouse. Ten percent of giving to WLC is allocated to a community impact fund. In 2006, WLC voted to have the funds benefit Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. This initiative provides age-appropriate books every month to children from birth to age five.
Every October, WLC hosts the Power of the Purse event which brings together more than 400 women from the area. The event includes lunch, a guest speaker and bidding on designer purses and theme bags. In 2012, proceeds from the event totaled more than $7300. All proceeds from the luncheon benefited Imagination Library.
