Friends of the Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums Board
The nonprofit friends group that supports your museums, formerly known as the Jamison Museum Association, is now known as the Friends of the Mining and Rollo Jamison Museums (as of January 1, 2017). The members voted to change the name of the organization at their Annual Meeting in November in order to more accurately represent their current activities and mission.
Friends Board members lead the 501(c)3 nonprofit that organized in the 1980s to support the Rollo Jamison Museum through fundraising and volunteerism. Today they are active in exhibit development, assist with special events, and work in a wide range of activities.
