Following the fire that struck Notre-Dame de Paris on 15 April 2019, Fondation de France is mobilising its network and launching a special fund to rebuild the cathedral.
In the wake of the disaster that hit Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, partially destroyed by fire on the night of 15 April, Fondation de France has launched a special fund to enable donors to express their generosity. There is a vast amount of damage: two-thirds of the roof, parts of which were over 800 years old, was destroyed and its 100-metre high spire collapsed. The disaster has sparked an outpouring of emotion across France and throughout the world.
Fondation de France is one of four institutions authorized to collect French and international donations to rebuild France’s architectural jewel. With over 30 years’ experience in disaster relief, Fondation de France has the necessary expertise to enable everyone to contribute to its reconstruction.
