Upon becoming Pasco County Tax Collector in August of 2013, Mike Fasano created a charitable giving program that has, over the intervening years, raised over $800,000 for 76 charitable organizations/ programs that serve countless residents of Pasco County.
“It was very important to me that our office become a place to help people in need,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “Many people think of us merely as a location to pay property taxes and renew driver’s licenses. However, due to the hard work of our staff and their commitment to helping those in need, we also are a place where our customers can come and support our Charity-of-the-Month program and other fundraising efforts we hold throughout the year. I am so proud of not only our team of dedicated staff, but also the very generous residents who donate either through the mail or at any of the five tax offices across the county.”
Organizations that have an IRS 501( c )(3) designation and that serve Pasco County are eligible to be considered for the charitable giving program. For more information about the program and how to apply for potential involvement, please contact Assistant Tax Collector Greg Giordano at (727) 847-8179 or via email at email@example.com
