Congratulations, Susan! 
The Association of Fundraising Professionals recognized Susan as 2016's Outstanding Fundraising Professional for her 26 years of fundraising leadership.

The first time I visited the ROM as a child, I was greeted by a welcoming and knowledgeable volunteer. Now that I have the privilege of working here, I love walking through the Museum and seeing volunteers interact with the public with that same attentive enthusiasm and information.

National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, recognizes and salutes the contributions volunteers have made in our community, our country and around the world.

At the ROM, we are sincerely grateful to our wonderful family of 1,403 volunteers, who provide an incredible 114,000 hours of service each year. This establishes the ROM as third in major North American museums in terms of its extraordinary volunteer commitment.

Your tireless energy and dedication enables the ROM to develop outstanding exhibitions, engaging public programs and opportunities for life-long learning. Every day, you make a difference; and every day, you inspire us! Truly, you make the Museum more accessible and vibrant.

On behalf of the ROM Governors, thank you for being involved in the life of our Museum, for offering your support and generosity—not only on National Volunteer Week, but always.
