The Easton Charitable Trust, Inc. (ECT) is continually seeking out ways to increase our message to the community.  ECT offers a number of opportunities to be a part of The Festival of Trees.  You could choose to volunteer your time, sponsor or donate a tree, donate a gift certificate, or become a financial donor.  However you choose to be involved, we are truly appreciative of your generosity!  Click on the information below in the areas of interest where you want to get involved.




Become a part of ECT's Festival of Trees by sponsoring a tree. We have many categories to choose from that will fit your financial sponsorship. Thousands of people will see your name or name of your business on a tree.  When you sponsor a tree, our professional tree decorators take care of all the work and design and decorate an exceptional tree to represent you or your business.

Would you like to decorate your own tree and have it included in The Festival of Trees?  Be a part of the Festival by donating a tree that you have tastefully decorated to reflect your interests, your business or a holiday theme. You can incorporate products or services in your theme and gain maximum exposure to the Festival's visitors. Take advantage of this opportunity to expand your company's visibility and image with your kind donation of a decoration artificial tree, with lights and decorations. Our past donors have included many individuals, businesses, civic and social organizations, schools and families.
