How does the Vatican fund itself? Do Catholic churches around the world contribute? Does the Vatican financially help poor Catholic churches?

@gollum,
Most dioceses and churches are supported soley from the collection plate. A portion of which is given to the Peter and Paul fund which is then given to various organizations to help the poor and other catholic supported charities/and churches in poor countries. The church also has various business and land holdings that support the church as well.

@gollum,
How the Vatican funds itself is an important study. The Catholic Church celebrates ornamentation of sacraments, and the Vatican, like Mecca, is an international symbol of ornament divination. I believe you can find investor and engineer information about the Vatican on their official website.

Incidentally, did you know that the Hollywood (USA) movie "The Devil's Own" (1997) explores perspectives of Catholicism-oriented IRA (Irish Republican Army) bureaucrats on Church feasting (obviously indirectly though)?

@Abishai100,
Incidentally, did you know that your English is almost incomprehensible?
