Women of Tocqueville 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 more than $16 million 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.
