Augusta's United Way group serves as national model

Four years ago, there were those who said establishing an Alexis de Tocqueville Society in Augusta wouldn't happen. "People said we couldn't get any (members)," said Keith Benson, president of the United Way of the CSRA. To qualify for the elite group, an annual donation of $10,000 or more is required. Now the Augusta Alexis de Tocqueville Society is a model for other United Ways seeking to start one. The group started in 1996 with eight members; there are now 15.

United Way seeks generous donors

If United Way of the CSRA is ever going to reach its $5 million goal in the year 2000, it's going to take community leaders stepping up with major donations. That's why the agency is working to start its own segment of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society, the group of elite United Way donors who give $10,000 or more each year, said United Way Executive Director Keith Benson. So far, six people have stepped forward to become founding members of the society locally, and their names will be announced at the United Way's annual meeting in March, Mr. Benson said.

Invest in your United Way

One of the many privileges I have as chairman of the board of directors of United Way of the CSRA is that I get to see firsthand how our United Way adds value to our entire community and its many nonprofit agencies -- not just United Way's partner agencies.
