Why Mount Dora Community Trust?


The Mount Dora Community Trust has been a well-established community foundation successful in its goals for fifty years.


No costly or time-consuming start-up efforts required! There are also no initial IRS tax filing or corporate document requirements.


The Trust is a public non-profit organization exempt from income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Administrative costs are divided among all funds and overseen by the Mount Dora Distribution Committee.


Cash gifts are tax deductible up to 50% of a donor’s adjusted gross income – the maximum allowable by law – as opposed to the 30% limit imposed on gifts to a private foundation.
