ROM Governors

Special Events

Spectacular experiences at the ROM

Fundraising events at the ROM are truly memorable, and attending, sponsoring, or hosting an event is a wonderful way to support the Museum. The ROM Governors hosts annual signature fundraising events to support and create awareness of the Museum’s highest priorities.

Join us for exclusive parties, play golf on a stunning course, match wits with ROM curators or honour the Museum’s top supporters at our Chairs’ Reception.

You can also host your own fundraising event for the ROM. From a bake sale to a gala dinner, no event is too small or too big! And for fast-paced fundraisers, the ROM participates in the annual Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Charity Challenge. Walk or run and raise funds online for the Museum’s highest priorities.
