The Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation

The Frauenkirche Dresden is administered by a non-profit foundation.

The Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation (Stiftung Frauenkirche Dresden) was established in 1994 by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Saxony, the Free State of Saxony and the state capital Dresden.

Until the completion of the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, its main task was the reconstruction of the historic building. Since 2005, the Foundation has been responsible for shaping life in the church and preserving the church building. This mission is anchored in the foundation's statutes.

Building a church of the future together

The Frauenkirche Dresden is a citizens' church: in its message, its self-image and its structure. It thus continues the tradition in which it was built in the 18th century by Protestant Christians in the city of Dresden.

The fact that the legal form of a non-profit foundation was chosen for its sponsorship is unique in Germany. It sets an example for participative cooperation and civic engagement. The Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation can thus act independently in the service of the community. It belongs to no one but itself or to all those who actively contribute within the framework of the foundation's defined purposes.

Supported by donations

The Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation relies on diverse support from donors. It is committed to the unconditional preservation of the foundation's assets in perpetuity.

Every single contribution, whether large or small, helps to shape the Frauenkirche as a spiritual place of proclamation and prayer, as an open church for all, as a protected place of encounter and dialogue, as a sound space, as a reminder of peace, as a living church home for many people today and for the future. We thank all who contribute to this.
