Star-Telegram | 10/19/2005 | Open hearts and open hands

Star-Telegram | 10/19/2005 | Open hearts and open hands: "Former Mayor Bob Bolen has been touting Fort Worth as the most generous city in America for years. If you have any doubts, get in your car and look at the names on the buildings as you drive around our city: Carter, Richardson, Burnett, Moncrief, Tandy, Brown/Lupton, Bass, Scott, Justin, Muse, Alexander, Walsh, etc.

Space won't allow me to list them all, but you get the picture. Fort Worth has a great philanthropic heritage, and the last few weeks are living proof that we take that heritage very seriously.

Thursday is National Philanthropy Day in Fort Worth. The Association of Fundraising Professionals' Fort Worth Metro Chapter is celebrating 25 years of philanthropy by honoring the Amon G. Carter Foundation and the Sid W. Richardson Foundation for their years of giving in our community.

This local chapter is made up of 175 professional fund-raisers dedicated to ethical and effective fund raising for nonprofit organizations in Fort Worth and throughout North Texas."
