Change for Charity

Your parking meter change funds local charities.

Six organizations are designated each year to receive proceeds from the parking meters and parking tickets at Easton. Each coin dropped in a meter and each ticket paid helps fund the featured local charities. To date, $1,700,000 has been donated to local charities through the Change for Charity Program.

In addition to direct support from the Easton Community Foundation, Change for Charity recipients receive the benefit of signage and LED screen exposure at Easton Town Center, as well as the opportunity to schedule use of the Easton Community Booth during the months of the Change for Charity partnership.

The Community Booth is a host location inside the Easton Station Building available for use by community groups to reach the thousands of visitors at Easton each day, and is available to qualifying 501(c)3 organizations on a first-come, first-served application basis.

Easton is pleased to partner with the following Change for Charity recipients in 2019:

The Center for Family Safety and Healing

Harmony Project

Ruling Our eXperiences (ROX)

Furniture Bank of Central Ohio


KIPP Columbus
