Recognition Policy

The City of Fort Worth Recognition Program provides an avenue to showcase the events, programs and people that make Fort Worth one of the most livable cities in the nation.

Proclamations

The City of Fort Worth issues proclamations at no charge to individuals or groups. All proclamations are sponsored and signed by at least one councilmember in addition to the Mayor.

Requests must include:

  1. Facts about the subject matter - enough information to make 4 points
  2. Specific title of what will be proclaimed
  3. Date of proclamation and date to be presented/picked up
  4. Contact information of person making the request including: name, complete mailing address, phone number and email (if applicable)
  5. Are you celebrating an anniversary? If so, what anniversary? (We no longer grant annual proclamations; rather we honor anniversaries like fifth, 10th, 15th, etc.)
  6. Are you a nationally recognized non-profit organization?

All requests MUST be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date the proclamation will be presented or picked up.

General Recognition Guidelines

Proclamations are not issued for:

Fort Worth retains the rights to edit all proclamation text to reflect the city’s vision, mission and goals.

Proclamations must be picked up at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St., unless alternative arrangements are made. A $15 fee is charged for additional copies of proclamations placed in a presentation folder. This fee should be paid to the Mayor’s Office either in cash or by check payable to the City of Fort Worth.

Certificates

Certificates are issued at no charge to individuals and groups and only bear the signature of the sponsoring councilmember. Certificates are not eligible for presentation at a City Council meeting.
