French Heritage Society is devastated by the images of Notre-Dame Cathedral aflame and stands with so many around the world in sympathy and support. Protecting the architectural legacy of France is at the very heart of our mission, and we must provide whatever aid we can to this cherished monument in a time of dire need. We have established a Notre-Dame Fire Restoration Fund to allow those whose thoughts are with Paris to take immediate action to ensure that the cathedral’s storied history survives. This tragedy is an urgent reminder of the fragility of our rare architectural treasures and the vital work to preserve them for future generations.
French Heritage Society, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, has established a fund to accept donations for the restoration work that will be necessary as a result of the devastating fire at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris.
Donations are tax-deductible under US Tax laws and eligible for tax credit under French tax laws.
