Case study:Achates Fundraises: Plus Tate

Plus Tate, founded and coordinated by Tate, is a dynamic network of visual arts organisations stretching across the UK that exchange ideas, knowledge, skills and resources, and collaborate on joint projects.

Since September 2020, Achates has delivered a programme of expert-led discussions for the Plus Tate Development group. Against the pressures of navigating the COVID-19 crisis, these online sessions for visual arts Development professionals have provided an important space to share best practice and emerging insights around fundraising and income generation within the current climate, and to reflect on how this will inform approaches in the future. Sessions have focused on a range of issues identified by the Plus Tate Development group including building digital engagement programmes and their fundraising, income generation potential, and strengthening impact evaluation.
