Women of Tocqueville

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.

Fund for Women and Children

In 2017, the Women of Tocqueville launched an endowment fund with the United Way Foundation of Metropolitan Dallas to provide support to North Texas women and children in perpetuity. The Women of Tocqueville Fund for Women and Children has raised millions of dollars to deliver targeted financial and skill-based investments in the areas of education, income and health—the building blocks of opportunity—for local women and children.
  • Women of Tocqueville unites Dallas’ most influential women around our community’s most pressing issues. We come together as community leaders, business executives and passionate philanthropists to drive positive change for all of our neighbors across North Texas.

  • I grew up with philanthropy as a core pillar in my family. I got involved in Women of Tocqueville, where the more you give, the more you get in return. That really proved true with my involvement in United Way. Some of my very best friends in the world come from the Women of Tocqueville.
