What is the Easton Community Foundation?

When you use a meter at Easton, you aren’t just paying to park; even more, you’re helping to fund the work of the Easton Community Foundation. These funds help support the Central Ohio community at large, as well as non-profit organizations, schools, the development of future community leaders, the arts, and much more.

Our mission is to be actively engaged in the well-being of our community. Moreover, we want to support programs that make Central Ohio a better place to live, work and raise a family.

The Easton Community Foundation is a supporting member of the Columbus Foundation. In this partnership, the main focus is to improve the overall community for the benefit of all its residents.The foundation is funded due to the parking meter proceeds at Easton Town Center and Gateway properties.

Over the past 20+ years, the Easton Community Foundation has provided over $8.4 million in financial support. Because of that, hundreds of organizations have strengthened the central Ohio community through services and programming that support families, children, health, education, and the arts.

Easton’s philanthropic outreach includes the following programs:

Our Change for Charity Program designates a new organization every two months so that our community feels supported in multiple areas. As a result, organizations receive a portion of the meter proceeds and ticket revenues generated at Easton.
