How to donate to Notre-Dame Cathedral:
Thank you for visiting this page! We laid out a simple guide on how to donate to Notre-Dame Cathedral.
Established in 2017, Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris began to support efforts to restore Notre-Dame Cathedral. Pollution, rain and time weakened the cathedral’s basic structure, and an ambitious $135 million campaign was planned to save Notre-Dame de Paris. Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2017. Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is leading the international fundraising efforts to rebuild and restore Notre-Dame Cathedral. Through Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris, all your donations to Notre Dame are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by US tax law.
On April 15, 2019, the scope of that campaign dramatically changed when a fire broke out under the eaves of the cathedral’s roof.
One year later, chief architects of Historical Monuments presented restoration plans for Notre-Dame Cathedral to the National Commission for Heritage and Architecture (CNPA). CNPA unanimously approved the architects’ recommendations that Notre-Dame Cathedral be restored to its prior state. The plan was also approved by President Emmanuel Macron of France.
Now a huge task lies before us. We must rebuild, restore and protect Notre-Dame Cathedral. We must help open her doors once more to welcome the millions of visitors who come to visit her each year. Notre-Dame Cathedral is not just a Parisian or a French monument. She belongs to the world, and she needs our help.
