ABOUT TATE AMERICAS FOUNDATION: Tate Americas Foundation is an independent charity based in New York that raises support for Tate from individuals, foundations, and corporations in the Americas. The charity was founded in 1987, when Sir Edwin and Lady Manton created the American Fund for the Tate Gallery, a restricted endowment to acquire works of art from North and South America for presentation to Tate. The organization, previously known as American Patrons of Tate, was renamed the Tate Americas Foundation in early 2013 to reflect the organization’s evolving role and expanding geographical base of support. Since 1999, the charity has raised over $210 million in cash donations and acquired $76 million in art (through purchase or gift). For more information, please visit www.tateamericas.org
