|Members of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society have not only made Houston what it is today, they continue to set the markers for all it can become. These are the people whose vision, humanity and generosity inspire us all and guide us to a future that is brighter than we can even imagine.
We salute the 870 Alexis de Tocqueville Society members for leading the way, staying the course through good times and bad, and making a better tomorrow possible. Together they contributed more than $15.4 million in 2011-12.
A select group of committed Alexis de Tocqueville Society members encourages new members and increased giving through their Challenge Match fund. Heartfelt thanks go to our Benefactors and Visionaries for generously leveraging their gifts to make an even bigger difference in changing Houston for good.
