Notre-Dame de Paris is an iconic Gothic cathedral dating back to the 12th century. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site with Paris Banks of the Seine, it is one of the most beloved monuments in the world, visited by more than 12 million people every year before the fire.


Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2017. Our original mandate was to support the restoration and preservation of Notre-Dame Cathedral, which had not had major repairs since the mid-1800s.


Challenges like pollution, rain, and the inferior quality of the stone used during the 19th century restoration weakened the basic infrastructure of the cathedral and became increasingly critical to address. To halt the decay, in 2017 Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris launched an international fundraising campaign to raise the $135 million needed for the renovation, on top of the $45 million budget committed by the French Government.


In the aftermath of the devastating fire on April 15, 2019, our mission changed to rebuild, restore and preserve Notre-Dame Cathedral.


Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is the official public charity leading the international fundraising efforts to rebuild and restore Notre-Dame Cathedral.
