CSX yesterday announced a $10 million contribution to the Museum of Science & History (MOSH) in Jacksonville, Florida, to support the museum's Genesis capital campaign.

One of Jacksonville’s largest employers, CSX will be recognized as the presenting sponsor of the new museum, according to a news release. The Class I moved its headquarters to Jacksonville in 2003.

"We are immensely grateful to CSX for their transformational gift to the MOSH Genesis,” said Jill Davis, chair of the Genesis capital campaign cabinet and vice chair of MOSH's board. "This generous contribution will have a lasting impact on our institution, enabling us to create a museum that offers engaging exhibits, dynamic educational programs, and memorable experiences for visitors of all ages."

The capital campaign supports plans for the MOSH to relocate to a new building on the Northbank of the St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville. 

"CSX’s use of scientific and innovative principles has made history within the transportation industry. Today, their remarkable contribution makes a different kind of history as the largest single donation to date to the MOSH Genesis capital campaign," said MOSH CEO Alistair Dove.
