The RMSC earned a 4-Star rating from Charity Navigator!

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.

For information about corporate partnership opportunities contact Kendra Lee Adams, Corporate & Foundation Relations Manager at or 585.697.1939.


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.


Your company can entertain guests in a unique setting, or provide your staff with unforgettable experiences by hosting a corporate event at the RMSC. Our available spaces are among Rochester’s hidden treasures for entertaining.

Whether you host a small reception in the stately parlor of the historic Cunningham House or throw a glowing gala that overlooks East Avenue, we can accommodate your gathering and are happy to customize your event. You can even coordinate an exclusive experience incorporating our permanent and special exhibits, educational programs, Strasenburgh Planetarium shows and more.

Why are we proud to be corporate sponsors?
