Why your donations matter

Maria Noth, Vice Managing Director of the Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation, explains why donations are so important for all the work that is done in the Frauenkirche.

Why should I donate to the Frauenkirche Dresden Foundation?

To maintain the church and to fill its rebuilt stone walls with life, we depend on the support of our donors. Ever since the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, you and your donations have been our financial cornerstone. We need more than one million euros a year to meet the purposes of the foundation, which does not receive any public funding. Though the administrative costs are strictly controlled, the funds required are rising, for instance due to increasing reinvestment in the building itself. That is why we ask for your support.

Will my contribution have a lasting future effect?

The Frauenkirche is supported by a non-profit foundation jointly launched by the Lutheran Church of Saxony, the Free State of Saxony and the City of Dresden. We attach great importance to investing the funds dedicated to the foundation’s goals in a safe, diversified portfolio. Endowments and bequests entering the foundation's funds are perpetuated and underpin the future of the Frauenkirche.

How can I experience the Frauenkirche, as an individual donor?

Your donation or endowment makes you part of our globally growing, vibrant Frauenkirche community. We invite you to visit the church at any time to absorb and help to shape the message the Frauenkirche conveys, along with other people and supporters. You are invited to attend services and music, to pray and be silent, to observe and enter into dialogue. Simply get in touch.
You have our wholehearted thanks for your commitment!
