OVer $8.4 Million in Community Support

When you use a meter at Easton, you aren’t just paying to park; 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, supporting organizations and 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 and is funded through 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 to hundreds of organizations that strengthen 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:
