Donation box at Tate Modern

Government funding is received from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the requirements are laid out in Tate’s management agreement with the department.

Tate is accountable to the public via Parliament for the services it provides. As such, it is required to demonstrate that it is conducting its operations as economically and effectively as possible.

For further information about the money we have received and how we have spent it, see the annual Tate Reports and Financial Statements.

Tate supplements the grant it receives from the DCMS through other sources, including trading, admissions to temporary exhibitions and fundraising activities. Around 70% of our income is raised from non-government sources.
