The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Rochester Museum & Science Center stimulates broad community interest and understanding of science and technology, and their impact--past, present, future--on our lives.
Invest in the future. Invest in Rochester. Support RMSC.
The Rochester Museum & Science Center is a valuable community resource, with our three-floor Science Museum, iconic Strasenburgh Planetarium and picturesque Cumming Nature Center.
Support from individual members, companies, foundations and public sources, including the very generous Monroe County, allow us to create a first-class cultural attraction with more than 200 hands-on exhibits that engage families, friends and groups in serious fun. We bring Rochester’s rich history of innovation and invention to life by telling the stories held in the more than 1.2 million items in our collection.
You can join these individuals and organizations in supporting our mission as a donor, volunteer, Women's Council member or Museum member.
