Century Investors

Century Investors is United Way for Greater Austin’s major donor giving society. Century Investors was established in 2015 to recognize our community’s most generous and loyal donors who are dedicated to setting a legacy of giving and driving us to our upcoming centennial anniversary in the next nine years.

Century Investors contribute $2,500 or more annually. Members who give $10,000 or more annually, or participate in our Step-Up program, are additionally recognized as Tocqueville Society members. The United Way Worldwide Tocqueville Society was founded in 1984 in order to recognize and deepen the understanding, commitment and support of our most generous community investors and stands as the highest level of giving within UWATX’s Century Investors program. Giving at the Tocqueville Society level offers exclusive opportunities and additional recognition throughout the year.
