Corporate Support

Invest in the Future. Invest in Rochester. Support RMSC.

Join the prestigious list of companies already gaining value through their association with the RMSC.

With nearly 375,000 annual visitors and a growing regional presence, aligning your company with the Rochester Museum & Science Center provides a unique, engaging and meaningful way to support our community.

The RMSC engages all young people through a collaborative, hands-on, minds-on and inquiry-based approach to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning, thereby inspiring our future scientists and also elevating the prospects of all students. This includes those at schools with limited resources who, without STEM education, have fewer options.

Corporate support plays a vital role in allowing the RMSC to continue to offer engaging STEM experiences. We help build our community’s workforce by serving to ensure that companies have the technical and scientific talent they need. As we strive to shape tomorrow’s workforce and improve the quality of life in our community, we look to today’s leaders for support.

Our lower level partnerships offer special perks for your employees while our most prominent level of giving offers your company year-round, multi-year marketing value. We offer several levels of support that can be customized to best help you achieve your goals.


Please call Katie Mackey, Corporate and Foundation Relations Manager, at 585.697.1973 to join or renew your Corporate Partner Membership.

Corporate Partnership

Corporate partners enjoy a host of benefits that align the company’s brand with one of Rochester’s most trusted and valued institutions. Through corporate partnerships, you’ll create a strong experiential connection with our visitors and with the broader community.

Corporate partnerships are also a great way to support science education, and they offer many special perks that connect your employees to the Museum and reward them for a job well done.

The RMSC will work with you to ensure you are getting the most from your corporate partnership. Higher levels of partnership provide companies with a distinctive, effective way to achieve specific marketing objectives. We work alongside you to create robust, customized opportunities that maximize your visibility throughout Rochester and among our nearly 375,000 annual visitors.

Why are we proud to be corporate supporters?


"... a passion for lifelong learning and education."

Patrick Cunningham
Former CEO, Manning & Napier
“I am incredibly proud of the numerous ways that the RMSC impacts Rochester—through engaging, inquisitive discovery and immersive experiences. We applaud the RMSC’s ongoing dedication to building memorable experiences for families in our community—through a passion for lifelong learning and education—a value that, we too, share, at Manning & Napier. Across both of our organizations, collaboration and teamwork are keys to moving progress forward, and enables us to take hands-on, experiential learning to the next level.”



"... the opportunity to share such a cultural treasure."

Mark E. Davitt
President, ConServe
“ConServe is proud to be a corporate supporter of the Rochester Museum & Science Center and the tremendous opportunities that it provides to our community. We are privileged to have such a wonderful asset as part of our community and welcome the opportunity to share such a cultural treasure with our valued employees, their families and the Upstate region.”



"... connecting students to our services [and] to science."

Stephanie Salanger
Northeast Community Investment Manager, Time Warner Cable
“Time Warner Cable and the RMSC have a longtime partnership and we are proud to be a part of such a vital community resource. As a technology company committed to STEM education, RMSC plays an important role in expanding the concept of science from the classroom to the world, a concept with which today’s kids are very familiar. Our ability to offer the hands-on TWC weather exhibit at RMSC as well as our partnership on several other programs is vital to connecting students to our services, to science, as well as our employees to the community.”



"... the opportunity to give back."

Jerry Cott
President, EMCOR Services Betlem
“Supporting such a vital organization to our community provides EMCOR Services Betlem with the opportunity to give back. Corporate membership allows all of our employees and their families to experience the RMSC. Corporate support is important for the sustainability of such an important community resource.”
