Provide for the Frauenkirche in your will

Many people are closely linked to the Frauenkirche. They attach importance to con-tinuing this association after their death. They remember the Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation by making a bequest or by leaving something in their will. In this way their wealth is making a contribution to something close to their heart and which they may already be supporting today.

The work of the Frauenkirche Foundation in Dresden – the upkeep of the building and the organisation of its spiritual life – is financed almost exclusively by private means. If the objectives of the Foundation are to continue to be realized, we are de-pendent on the support of numerous donors. In addition to donations or endow-ments, there is also the option of supporting the preservation of the Frauenkirche in Dresden by making a provision in your will. 

Legacy

You determine who will inherit in your will. If you have not made a will, the legal clauses  regarding inheritance are applied. Lawful heirs are either relatives of the testator or a spouse. If a single person without relatives dies and no alternative arrangements have been made, their fortune passes to the state.  

No inheritance tax is liable if you leave your fortune to a non-profit organisation like the Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation. Thus your donation can be used for the conservation of the Frauenkirche without any deductions being made. 

Bequest

A bequest is free of obligations. For a bequest, precisely defined material or monetary assets are named in a will. A bequest makes sense in cases where the aim is to give a person or organisation a special asset or specific right. No inheritance tax is liable if you bequeath assets to a non-profit organisation like the Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation. Thus your donation can be used without any deductions being made.

We should be glad to advise you personally and in confidence about ways to support the work of our Foundation.
