The Town of Fountain Hills has been honored to be part of Sister Cities International since 2000. The Fountain Hills Sister Cities Corporation was established as a community-based 501(c)3 organization providing opportunities for the people of our area to develop relationships through volunteers who reach out to interact with citizens of our Sister Cities. The organization aims to achieve international understanding, cultural sensitivities, humanitarian efforts, and encourage trade and tourism. Goals are accomplished through cultural and student exchanges, educational programs, and community events.
The town has four cities in the program, Concepcion de Ataco, El Salvador; Dierdorf, Germany; Kasterlee, Begium; and, Zamość, Poland
Our friends in Zamość are about an hour from the Ukraine border, supporting many refugees from the war in Ukraine. The Fountain Hills Sister Cities has started a fundraising campaign to support nonprofits in Zamość who are dedicated to helping the refugees arriving in the region. Sister Cities has set up a separate account for this purpose.If you prefer to donate by check, please send to:
