The Alexis de Tocqueville Society was inspired by the French philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville, who admired the American spirit of philanthropy, and the organization was founded 1981 by Thomas F. Frist, Jr.
Today, Tocqueville Society members carry on that same spirit of selflessness and cooperation. Their generosity creates a lasting impact in our community.
