King Baudouin Foundation opens special fund for reconstruction of Notre-Dame Cathedral
The King Baudouin Foundation – a charity dedicated to heritage conservation and protection – has opened a special fund for the reconstruction of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. All the money collected by the fund will eventually be wired to the Heritage Foundation (Fondation du patrimoine) in Paris, which is in charge of assembling funds from all over the world for the reconstruction of the cathedral.
The Notre-Dame Cathedral was seriously damaged by a fire on Monday night. Donations earmarked for reconstruction efforts from rich French and foreign individuals, as well as from several private institutions, have already exceeded €800 million.
Those who wish to make a donation may do so by wiring their money to:
