Every gift, regardless of size, can make a real difference to the future to our four galleries. We rely on the continued generosity of our supporters to ensure future visitors will be able to enjoy the national collection for many years to come.
THE BEST LEGACY FOR YOU
Anyone can leave a gift in their Will, and there are a number of ways to remember Tate in this way: by leaving a specified sum of money; a work of art; or a percentage of your estate to the gallery.
When you contact us to express an interest in leaving a Legacy, we will send you information on the different types of Legacies available. We would advise that you always discuss your plans with a solicitor.
Everyone who pledges to support Tate through a Legacy gift will be invited to join The 1897 Circle. As a member, you will be invited to a special annual event hosted by Tate’s Legacy Ambassadors, David and Jenny Tate and you will receive a regular newsletter that includes information about upcoming events at all four galleries.

Tax efficient giving
You may be eligible to receive a reduction in inheritance tax when leaving a gift in your Will to charitable causes like Tate. Leaving a gift in your Will to charity is completely free from inheritance tax, which means a bequest to Tate will be deducted from the value of the estate before any tax liability is calculated.
Other Tax Incentives
Arts Council England also has schemes which are geared towards offering tax incentives in connection with cultural property.
Acceptance in Lieu
The Acceptance in Lieu scheme enables taxpayers to transfer important works of art and other important heritage objects into public ownership while paying inheritance tax, or one of its earlier forms. The taxpayer is given the full open market value of the item, which then becomes the property of a public museum, archive or library.
Cultural Gifts Scheme
This scheme enables UK taxpayers to donate important works of art and other heritage objects to be held for the benefit of the public or the nation. In return, donors will receive a tax reduction (income tax, capital gains tax or corporation tax) based on a set percentage of the value of the object they are donating.
