In honor of their generosity, members of the Greenwich United Way Alexis de Tocqueville Society were celebrated in May at a gathering held at the home of Karen and Dennis Keegan.

The Tocqueville Society includes those donors who contribute $10,000 or more annually in support of the work of the Greenwich United Way. A voice for positive change in the community, the Tocqueville Society represents more than 50% of the total United Way funds raised.

Ms. Keegan, United Way Board Chair Virginia Meyer and United Way President Stuart Adelberg presided over thank yous to the Tocqueville donors. They also acknowledged the leadership of the 2012-2013 campaign co-chairs Patricia and Barrett Burns, Fund Development Vice Chair Terry Lamantia, and numerous other campaign volunteers during a difficult fund-raising year.

“In this most challenging economic environment, there are thousands of local people who need us, and thankfully there are others in our community — like all of you — who step forward when needed,” Mr. Adelberg said. “You answer the call for help — generously, selflessly, thoughtfully and repeatedly. Thanks to all of you we are making a tremendous difference every day for so many people who would not otherwise be served.”

Since 1933 the community has relied on the leadership and expertise of United Way volunteers in researching and identifying local needs, driving planning efforts, uniting constituencies to develop effective solutions, and raising the funds to implement them. In the coming year it will invest thousands of volunteer hours and more than $2.5 million toward that end.
