RMSC Council

RMSC Council

In 1941, several Rochester women founded the Women’s Council for social interaction and to support the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). These women volunteered their time and energy by creating special activities and annual fundraising events.

In 2018, the RMSC Women’s Council opened its membership to men and women, changed its name to the more inclusive RMSC Council, and expanded its mission to provide educational programming to the Rochester community. Since its inception, RMSC Council has proudly donated more than $2 million to RMSC.

Our Council is a volunteer service organization that also supports RMSC with special events and fundraising activities.


Join Us!

We welcome new members to the RMSC Council, and offer opportunities to use your special skills and interests in a variety of projects and events each year.

Our members are women and men with a common interest in the RMSC and our community. We ask that each RMSC Council member volunteer at least 30 hours per year to our projects. Membership to the RMSC is also required.
