A Message from the Tocqueville Society Chairs
The Alexis de Tocqueville Society provides an opportunity for United Way’s most generous supporters to invest in building a stronger, caring community in York County. Your commitment provides a cornerstone of support that enables United Way to improve the education, health, and financial stability of our most vulnerable neighbors.
On behalf of the Tocqueville Society Cabinet, thank you for your dedication and generosity to the greater good of York County. As the corporate giving landscape continues to change, YOU are critical to ensuring that York County remains a community where we all can thrive. 
We were pleased this year to welcome 11 new members into the Tocqueville Society, each of whom brings their own unique passions and dedication to United Way’s work. If you haven’t had a chance to meet our new members yet (their names are highlighted in our membership list in our Impact Report), please reach out and thank them for making such an important and worthwhile investment.  
We recognize the many returning members who have reaffirmed their commitment to give back at the highest level, inspired others to join them, and provided hope and opportunities to our neighbors in need. Your faithful support enables us to fund programs that impact lives and help individuals and families thrive.  
None of this would be possible without our fellow Tocqueville Society Cabinet members who have dedicated their time and talents toward sharing the United Way message and engaging fellow generous philanthropists in this work. 
I am grateful to each Cabinet member and to each member of the Tocqueville Society for your generosity, and I ask you to support our incoming Chair, Tom Donley, as he leads us forward into the next year.  
Be well,

Kent Ketterman, Immediate Past Chair
PeoplesBank, A Codorus Valley Company
