Connected Charities

Tate has three connected charities. These are independent and do not impact on Tate’s operating policies. They work closely with Tate and have the aim of helping Tate fulfil its mission for the public benefit. 

Tate Foundation was established in the 1980s and re-launched in 2006 as an advisory board and membership body.  Its primary aim is to support Tate’s growing need to fund acquisitions, exhibitions, learning, research, conservation and capital projects. Tate Foundation’s Chairman is Franck Petitgas.  [PDF, 86 Kb]


The following are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Board through which Tate operates its highly successful trading activities: publishing, catering and retail. All profits go to support the work of Tate.
