A Message from the Tocqueville Society Chairs
 
On behalf of the Tocqueville Society Council, we wish to personally thank each of you as members of the Tocqueville Society for your dedication and generosity to the greater good of York County.  We knew going into the 2018 Campaign that this was a year of transition for United Way and we were proud to lend our support to ensure that the Alexis de Tocqueville Society remained a cornerstone of generous support.  
 
As a Cabinet, we believe a larger and more engaged Tocqueville Society will help United Way of York County serve more people and pursue and fulfill its goals of making York County a community where children, individuals and families thrive. However, our Cabinet is only as strong as the Society as a whole, and it will be incumbent on all of us to work together to reignite the passion for the Tocqueville Society and generate the interest and value in new membership.  
 
We were thrilled to welcome seven new members this year, who collectively bring a diverse array of experience, talent, and passion.  If you haven’t had a chance to meet our new members yet (their names are highlighted in our membership list), please reach out and congratulate them on making such an important and worthwhile investment.  
 
We also need to recognize all of our dedicated returning members who continue to make the commitment to give back at this level. Your annual support allows United Way to provide a stable base upon which to do their great work. By making the commitment to invest in our community at the Tocqueville level, you are sending a clear message that you are committed to York’s success.  
 
Our final thank you goes to our fellow Tocqueville Society Cabinet members — it has been an honor to work alongside such dedicated community builders.  We look forward to continuing to blaze a trail in our community that connects philanthropists to the impact they envision for a strong community.

Sincerely,

William Yanavitch, Immediate Past Chair                                    Kent Ketterman, Chair
