Discovery Patrons Circle (DPC)
Discovery Patrons Circle (DPC) members are passionate about sharing their ROM with family and friends and enjoy priority access and invitations to adult and family programs and select events. With their annual philanthropic gift, they generously provide a critical base of support for the Museum, enabling our expert staff to plan special exhibitions, public programs and learning initiatives that reach more than one million visitors and hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren each year.
Discovery Patrons Circle annual gifts start at $1,000. Each gift made through the DPC program ($1,000-$1,999) entitles you to a charitable tax receipt in the highest allowable amount as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines.
