Fort Worth, Texas Sister Cities Kicks Off 2018 Members Circle Campaign

Led by Bob Jameson, 2018 Campaign Chair and President of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Members Circle is a thriving network of individuals, organizations, corporations and community leaders committed to expanding global relationships for Fort Worth.

Lead donors to this year’s campaign will be recognized at the Mayor’s International Dinner at the Omni Hotel May 24.  Due to the generosity of corporate and individual donors, Sister Cities is starting the year with $195,208 in Members Circle commitments and is on its way to meeting a $350,000 goal.

This early support comes from Sundance Square, as a Platinum member; the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau, Rae & Michael Hyatt, and Texas Health Resources as Premier members; BNSF Railway Company, the DFW International Airport, and Linebarger Goggan Blair & Simpson, LLP as Global members; Bank of Texas, Bell Helicopter, Bennett Benner Partners, Mary Palko, Sister Cities International, and Tarrant County College as Presidential members; as well as 100% of the Sister Cities’ board of directors and others.

“We kicked off this year’s campaign with a reception to welcome a delegation from Nîmes, France who were visiting in hopes of establishing a partnership with Fort Worth,” said Johnny Campbell, Board Chairman. “We are working to strengthen and create even more relationships for Fort Worth and grow the opportunities for youth and adults alike.”

Funding and in-kind support from the City of Fort Worth (4% of Sister Cities’ budget) plays a key role in Sister Cities’ mission, but most work is made possible through public support like that received through the Members Circle.
