The ZUMBROTA COMMUNITY TRUST, a tax-exempt umbrella, was established to benefit organizations and activities unique to the Zumbrota area.

The mission of the ZUMBROTA COMMUNITY TRUST is to establish, grant aid to, and promote activites, organizations, and individuals whose purpose and intent it is to engage in projects of a social, moral, educational, and benevolent nature to benefit the citizens of Zumbrota, the Zumbrota/Mazeppa schoool district and the four continguous townships. To accomplish these goals the trust will raise, manage, and disburse funds in a manner consistent with the regulations prescribed by section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and consistent with Section 12 of the Zumbrota Community Trust bylaws.

The ZUMBROTA COMMUNITY TRUST is an outgrowth of the Zumbrota Community Foundation, which was established in 1947. Over the years, the Foundation funded many worthwhile Zumbrota projects such as the swimming pool, hospital, golf course, and park. It also managed money which was given in wills and bequests by individuals to benefit the community.

The Trust was given great impetus by Robert Langsdorf (a Zumbrota native) who, in his will, gave approximately $750,000 to the Zumbrota Community Foundation to be managed by the Minnesota Community Foundation. Thirty percent of the income from the Langsdorf investments is managed by the Zumbrota Community Trust. Each year a gifting committee meets and considers applicants from the area who have applied for grants. Some $327,000 has been dispersed into the Zumbrota area since the Langsdorf gift in 2001. The Zumbrota Community Trust is honored to be part of this heritage of generosity.

In addition to the Langsdorf funds, The Trust may be called upon to invest and manage other monies given to the community for either designated or undesignated charitable purposes. The Trust also acts as an umbrella for local non-profit volunteer organizations.

As a 501(c) (3) organization, all volunteer operated, the Zumbrota Community Trust sponsors and supports the organizations and projects that are linked below.

Again, the Zumbrota Community Trust is proud to serve the Zumbrota area and school district in this unique way. We would appreciate your tax exempt donations.
