ROM Governors

Volunteers are the Heart of the ROM

Susan Horvath

Your support is critical for the ROM to deliver on its inclusive, expansive and ever-important mission
It has a real impact, and so do you. We are so very grateful for your belief and commitment.

This week marks National Volunteer Week, an annual event that recognizes and celebrates the important contributions volunteers make in our community and our country.   

This past year, the ROM and ROM Governors' Volunteer Community consisted of approximately 1,300 passionate, dedicated and supportive volunteers, who generously contribute their time, energy and effort to ROM programs and events, serve as Trustees or Governors, participate on committees, or act as enthusiastic ROM ambassadors.

Our volunteers play many vital roles to create vibrant, memorable experiences for the Museum’s visitors every day: engaging with people in galleries and guiding tours, or working behind the scenes and outside the walls of our Museum.

Thank you, ROM Volunteers, for your hard work and inspiring enthusiasm, your support and generosity. Your work is essential in helping us strengthen our connection with visitors and the community. We are proud to express our gratitude – not only on National Volunteer Week, but always. You are the heart of the Royal Ontario Museum.
