Women of Tocqueville | United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

Women of Tocqueville Society

The mighty, mighty Women of Tocqueville are a passionate and influential network of corporate and community leaders who come together to support the work of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. Our goal is to leverage the collective power and leadership of women to further United Way’s mission of creating opportunity for all North Texans to thrive.

This dynamic, inclusive group of women donors drives measurable change in the areas of education, impact, and health—the building blocks of opportunity. Members volunteer as youth mentors, meet with Texas legislators about improving childcare standards, travel to Washington, D.C. to advocate on Capitol Hill and much more.

Women of Tocqueville Fund
for Women and Children

In 2017, the Women of Tocqueville launched an endowment fund at the United Way Foundation of Metropolitan Dallas to provide targeted financial and skill-based investments in the areas of education, income and health for North Texas women and children. To date, the Fund for Women and Children has invested in two impactful ventures:

LiftFund Women’s Business Center: With a $50,000 investment from the Women of Tocqueville Fund for Women and Children, and a $50,000 match from Comerica Bank, LiftFund will provide microloans to female entrepreneurs in the city’s southern sector so they can successfully grow their small businesses.

The United Way Social Innovation Incubator: With a $75,000 investment from the Women of Tocqueville Fund, this innovative program supports early-stage social ventures led and staffed by women and people of color who are working to implement new solutions in the areas of education, income, and health.
Volunteer opportunities are available for all Women of Tocqueville members within these investments.

Mission – To provide targeted financial and skill-based investments in the areas of education, income and health for North Texas women and children.

Vision – An equitable economic environment in which all women and children can achieve financial security.
