St. Michael's Church is state property, but counts as a filial church of Munich cathedral under church law. The Church Foundation of St. Michael's (Kirchenstiftung St. Michael) is independent and reports directly to the Archiepiscopal Ordinariate. While the Free State of Bavaria is responsible for all investments that affect the building fabric, the archdiocese funds the salaries of the full-time staff.

However, the diocesan subsidies cover not even half of our expenses. All remaining costs must be paid from the income generated by the church foundation: room maintenance, incurring charges, administrative and energy costs, liturgical needs and above all the fees of our freelance musicians (soloists, orchestral musicians). St. Michael's must "play in" more than half a million euros every year. Our main income sources are the Sunday collections, revenue from selling sacrificial candles, and, first and foremost, voluntary donations.

Our financial situation

We depend on donations, now, during the pandemic, more than ever before. Using the keyword "Kollekte" (collection of alms), you can transfer money to the account of St. Michael's. We are particularly grateful for your gifts in these strange times, since our revenue from the collection boxes has decreased considerably. Thank you so much for your willingness to support us.
