Your support enables the RMC Museum to maintain its collections and share them with visitors and researchers from around the world each year.
There are many ways to show your support:
The Friends of Point Frederick (FOPF) was incorporated in 2013 as a Not-for-Profit Charitable organization designed to support the preservation and exhibition of historical collections and archival material depicting the history of Point Frederick, the Royal Military College and other important sites in the City of Kingston; to research, educate and communicate that history; and to provide and maintain a Museum at Point Frederick. As a charitable organization, it is able to issue receipts for donations in kind or through financial instruements.
To date, FOPF has:
Hired an Assistant Curator to provide support to the Curator;
Arranged for the purchase of objects for the Museum Collections
Aided in the development of exhibits
FOPF is governed by a Board of Directors which is currently seeking Members to broaden its base, and will elect a new Board to provide direction for the future. The current Directors are Nos. 4459 Ed Murray, S124 Ron Haycock, and 3572 Frank Norman.
Thank you for considering donating to the RMC Museum. Every contribution helps to make a difference. Whether you’re interested in setting up a legacy gift or would just like to make a one-time donation, the museum offers many options to show your support. Please contact the Friends of Point Frederick to discuss these options.
There are many ways to contribute to the Museum as a volunteer. Volunteering provides opportunities to interact with the public, work with RMC Museum staff and develop an interest in Canadian military history by volunteering as a tour guide, researcher or collections technician. If you would like to learn more about becoming a volunteer please contact the Museums Curator.
The staff at the RMC Museum greatly appreciates all offers from potential donors. We depend on the generosity of the public to provide the museum with artifacts to create and update our exhibits.
If you wish to make a donation please contact the Museums Curator. Donations are only accepted unconditionally which means that the donor may not place restrictions upon use or display of an item or request that the item be returned. It’s also important to remember that artifacts acquired by the RMC Museum become the property of the Royal Military College
We can make the best use of an artifact when we know as much as possible about its history. For example, if you are donating a First World War uniform we would like to know who wore it and when, if the person was involved in any major campaigns, or anything else that may be known. A donor probably can’t give us too much information!
Please remember that if the museum staff must turn down your offer of a donation, it’s done only with the greatest reluctance. We appreciate the generosity of all those who wish to make a donation.
