Situation

Uniquely among national museums and galleries of similar scale in Britain, Tate raises the majority of its own running costs allowing over 7 million visitors a year to enjoy and experience a wide range of art across our four galleries. Our ambition is to continue to grow and care for the national collection and to share both familiar and new experiences of art with even more people within and beyond our galleries.

Solution

This is an opportunity for you to make a real difference to Tate. Donations to the Tate Fund provide vital support across our galleries, enabling Tate to carry out its central mission to promote the public understanding and enjoyment of art. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a real difference, helping us to continue to inspire millions of people each year.
