ROM Governors

Love the ROM



The ROM is celebrating a significant and exciting milestone in 2014—a century of building communities and bringing people and ideas together. In honour of the ROM centennial, we hope you will take part in our special community fundraising campaign called Love the ROM.

Our dedicated supporters have enabled the ROM to nurture discovery and inspire wonder for the past century. When you support the ROM, you’re investing in a cultural icon that enriches lives with extraordinary experiences of science and civilization.

Show your love for the ROM and celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime moment in the Museum's history by making a commemorative centennial gift in your name, or in a loved one's name, and receive special recognition in our centennial year! No gift is too small—we welcome one-time donations and monthly pledges.

Supporters who donate $150 or more to the campaign will be recognized on the ROM website, and donors who give $1,000 or more will be invited to share their unique ROM stories and memories, or wishes to loved ones in the future, in a commemorative centennial book that will become a permanent part of the ROM collections for generations to come.

When the Duke of Connaught opened the ROM on March 19, 1914, Sir Edmund Walker—the Museum’s first chairman—presented him with an illuminated manuscript as a memento. The centennial memory book is a modern version of this historic manuscript and will feature artwork by Rachel Ann Lindsay, a Toronto-based illustrator. Her drawings will complement selected stories and bring our community’s ROM memories to life. Learn more about the special benefits of donating to the Love the ROM campaign.

We hope you will support our campaign and show your love for the ROM!
Donate now online or call 416.586.5842 to pledge your support.
