Save the Date – Giving Tuesday, November 28th!

The daylight is shorter and pumpkin spice is in insatiable demand. It’s autumn, and as thoughts turn to turkey dinners and the brief chance to wear cable-knit sweaters in Florida, Habitat Lake-Sumter has been busy planning with the Mount Dora Community Trust for a different special day: Giving Tuesday




Mount Dora Community Trust has partnered with Habitat Lake-Sumter to give back to our community by matching your Giving Tuesday donations.

Stepping away from shopping to do something a little more meaningful, Giving Tuesday is your opportunity for generosity and gratitude!


Support Habitat Lake-Sumter and have your gift matched to further our mission of building decent, safe, and affordable housing by donating through The Mount Dora Community Trust during Giving Week 2023 – click  for details. 

Donate to Habitat Lake-Sumter through the Mount Dora Community Trust Giving Week from November 28th to December 5th and your gift will be matched! Giving Tuesday was launched in 2012 to start a conversation about the good we may do in this world. Ultimately, making the world a better place requires generosity and a dedication to measuring impact, talking about what we want to achieve, and gaining a better understanding of the problems we’re trying to solve. Your partnership with Habitat Lake-Sumter and Mount Dora Community Trust is your chance to make a difference regardless of the size of your contribution.

Together, we’re building a more compassionate and giving world while building homes, communities, and hope.
