Help replace the roof on the iconic Citrus Tower

Tax deductible


The Citrus Tower stands as a historic landmark in the heart of Clermont, FL. Soaring 22 stories into the sky, the tower has been a symbol of our town's heritage and pride for more than 60 years. This iconic structure has witnessed the growth and prosperity of our community. However, time has taken its toll, and we find ourselves in need of your help.




The Citrus Tower has been a beacon of hope and unity for our community, hosting countless events, and celebrations, and providing a place for everyone to gather. But now, we face a critical challenge – the roof of the Citrus Tower and the back building are in desperate need of replacement.






Thanks to the generous support of our community, we have made significant progress in renovating the Citrus Tower: new sidewalks, new paint, exterior upgrades, and landscaping. We've revitalized the interior, preserving its historical charm while creating a welcoming space for all. These improvements were done to ensure its ongoing popularity and significance within the community. But without a solid roof, our efforts to enhance the allure and sustainability of the landmark are at risk.

“I remember, as a little girl, the excitement of approaching Central Florida and being completely surrounded by citrus groves, pulling over to sample orange juice from a roadside kiosk. Complementing all this was the breathtaking view from the top of the tower. It was and continues to be, an amazing experience. It’s exciting to be able to be a part of its legacy.” — Sandra

“In honor of my mom, Lauretta, who recently passed away and who loved the Citrus Tower, my husband and I finally rode the elevator to the top to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary day. We loved it!” — Cheryl

“Some 30 years ago, my mom stopped here along our vacation travels with my brother and I. I can still recall the smell of oranges and the amazing view of the orange groves and delicious oranges we took home. Today, on my own family’s vacation travels, we stopped by with my two children to share this iconic tower. Instead of whole oranges, they enjoyed their delicious Citrus Twist drink and I, a hot orange tea. What a gem this tower remains!" — Michelle

A “gem," “magical,” “fantastic,” “breath-taking,” and a “thrill” are just some of the adjectives visitors have used to describe this meaningful landmark. No one wants to see this grand tower fall into disrepair!


With YOUR SUPPORT, we can ensure that the Citrus Tower remains a vibrant space for generations to come. A new roof will protect this cherished landmark from further damage and allow us to continue hosting events, exhibits, and educational programs for the community.

We invite you to become a part of the history of this amazing landmark by helping us reach our fundraising goal. We can’t do it without you! Your tax-deductible donation to our 501(c)(3) organization will directly contribute to replacing the roof of the Citrus Tower and the back building. Together, we can preserve our heritage and create a lasting legacy for future generations!


Donate today and help us safeguard the Citrus Tower for years to come. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that this beacon of our community remains a symbol of pride, unity, and resilience. Thank you for your support.
