Seattle-Pécs Sister Cities Association
The Association was founded in 1991, and is composed of individuals and organizations interested in promoting close ties between the people of Seattle, Washington State, and Pécs, Hungary. Its goals are to advance educational, cultural and commercial relations between both cities, and inform and educate the public about their sister city. The Association’s activities include hosting public officials, community leaders, and students from Pécs; conducting exchanges in the fields of education, culture, arts and trade; organizing participation in community programs, such as World Fest; and sponsoring social events, such as lectures, concerts, films, and theater performances. The funding sources are membership dues, donations and fundraising. Dues and donations are tax deductible for those who itemize. All funds are used for ongoing Association activities.
