We recently celebrated our region's most generous philanthropists and honored organizations and individuals who are igniting change in Central Maryland at the 2019 Annual Tocqueville Society Event.
- Philanthropists of the Year: Mary-Ann and Wally Pinkard

We're also happy to share that the Volunteer of a Lifetime award will now be called the Mark Furst Volunteer of a Lifetime Award.
Thank you to Mark, Mary-Ann and Wally, and Exelon for your outstanding commitment to Central Maryland and United Way -- and a special thank you to Marianne and Don Mattran for hosting our evening at Bar Vasquez.
Since 1987, central Maryland's Tocqueville Society members have been at the vanguard of improving the lives of countless individuals and families through extraordinary financial gifts, volunteerism and advocacy. For many, being a member is not so much about writing a check, rather it is an opportunity to have a more influential – even hands-on – role in solving the problems affecting central Maryland to create a better future.
United Way's Tocqueville Society members join a national network of more than 25,000 philanthropic leaders in a movement that is committed to creating opportunities for everyone in our region. Locally, there are 561 members raising more than $7 million for the central Maryland community.
