As the managing partner of the Markmel Company LLC, Mark Allen Hanrahan is responsible for accessing and capitalizing on commercial real estate and venture capital opportunities for the firm. Apart from his work, Mark Allen Hanrahan contributes to a number of charitable organizations, including the United Way of Central Iowa, and he is a member of the Tocqueville Society’s Ordre d’Egalite.

Inspired by historian Alexis de Tocqueville’s observation that Americans help each other in times of need and generously support the public welfare, the United Way of Central Iowa established the Tocqueville Society in 1984 to honor those philanthropists who annually contribute $10,000 or more in support of its mission to improve the lives of individuals and families in the community through its education, income, and health initiatives.

The Society recognizes nine levels of commitment based on contribution amount, named in terms of French orders. A donation of $1 million in a five-year timeframe grants a philanthropist membership in la Table Ronde des Millions de Dollars (Million Dollar Roundtable).
