Your Legacy: Inspiring lifelong love of learning

At its heart, the ROM is a home for people who thirst for knowledge, seek inspiration, and who enjoy quiet contemplation of the wonders in our world. Like you, our passion for learning makes us who we are.  

The ROM is, for generations past, present and future, a place where we can all learn something about the world—and ourselves. 

When you include the ROM in your legacy planning, you’re helping to ensure that we can continue to build a home for knowledge and sparks of inspiration for lifelong learners of any age.

  •  When my late partner Louis de Niverville passed away in 2019, I wanted to honour his memory in a meaningful way. I'm so pleased that by setting up an endowed fund, his legacy will be furthered through a lasting link to Canada's great Museum."

  •  A gift to the ROM supports an institution that is on the cutting edge of collecting, preserving, and studying materials from our natural and cultural worlds. Society is always the beneficiary of this endeavour. It is part of our common heritage.
