The Fountain Hills Sister Cities Corp is a community-based 501(c)3 or-ganization providing opportunities for the people of our area to develop relationships through volunteers who reach out to interact with citizens of our Sister Cities. We seek to achieve international under-standing, cultural sensitivities, hu-manitarian efforts and encourage trade and tourism. This is ac-complished through cultural and student exchanges, educational pro-grams and community events.

A Sister City is a broad-based, officially approved long-term part-nership between two com-munities in two countries. A Sister City relationship becomes official with a signing ceremony of the top-elected officials of the two local jur-isdictions, following approval by the local city councils. Sister City partnerships have the potential to carry out the widest possible diversity of activities.

The Sister City concept was developed in 1956 when  President Dwight Eisenhower launched a program known as the Town Affiliation Association of the United States, more commonly known as Sister Cities International. The movement created a way for local governments and everyday citizens to help bring together many cultures of the world.
