Help Support the Riverside Museum Associates

The Riverside Museum Associates believe that the rich, diverse, and unique history of Riverside needs to be preserved and shared with future generations.  To meet this mission, the RMA was founded to support the Riverside Metropolitan Museum–the primary steward of regional history.  The Museum preserves the history of the region’s contributions to American’s growth—the stories of the people, the land, the events—and shares this heritage by providing inspiring educational programs, performing ground breaking scientific research, and by the care, study, and exhibition of the collections entrusted to them.

The Riverside Museum Associates is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. As such, your donation is fully tax deductible to the full extent of the current tax law.

Everyone has a passion or an area of interest.
Can you find yours within the purpose of the RMA?  We  hope so.
Please donate today, become involved today, and discover today the joy of being a part of the Riverside Museum Associates.

Gifts that Keep on Giving

For a museum, time is a great enemy. What is at stake in our Riverside Metropolitan Museum is the legacy of the region and the great ties we have to those who came before us.  You can help to ensure that this legacy and its treasures are here for you, your children and grandchildren through other giving sources.

The Community Foundation

The RMA has three endowment funds at The Community Foundation, a community independent non-profit organization.  One is the Heritage House Preservation Endowment Fund which supports the preservation of Heritage House. Another is the Riverside Museum Associates/Rible Education Fund which supports the education programs of the Riverside Metropolitan Museum and the third is the Riverside Museum Associates General Fund which supports the programs, collections, and exhibits.  These endowment funds make monies available in perpetuity to support a particular project, program or cause.

To help build these funds and help ensure they are here for perpetuity, you can give a gift or bequest to one of the endowments either by contacting the Community Foundation or on-line at this link CF Donations.  Planned giving is another way for you to make a gift to your favorite charitable causes. The right planned gift can provide you and your loved ones with tax and income benefits. For more information on the different ways you can give, please call Jose A. Marquez, Director of Philanthropic Services at The Community Foundation at 951-241-7777 or email him at to show your love and support for the Museum and its programs.

Community Partnership Program

The Riverside Museum Associates is also participating in Provident Bank’s Community Partnership Program in order to qualify at the end of the year for a donation.

By opening and linking your account(s) at Provident Bank to Riverside Museum Associates, the Bank will take the aggregate total of all members’ deposits to calculate an annual donation.

The annual donation has the potential to increase each year as more members participate. The higher the balance in your Provident Bank account, the greater the donation amount your organization will receive. Your account information will be confidential and the donation will come from Provident Bank, NOT from your account.

To open and link your new and/or existing accounts at Provident Bank by simply visiting a branch or calling  (951) 782-6177.
