Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris nonprofit launches new donor engagement platform in support of beloved cathedral
WASHINGTON, DC, April 15, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Established in 2017, Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is the official public charity leading the cathedral's international fundraising efforts. The group's original mandate was to support the restoration and preservation of Notre-Dame Cathedral, which had not had major repairs since the mid-1800s. Now, two years after the devastating April 2019 Notre-Dame fire, the nonprofit is launching a new interactive donor engagement platform.
"Notre-Dame Cathedral is not just a French monument," says Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris president Michel Picaud. "She belongs to the world, and she needs our help. The new interactive website we've created gives people a chance to engage with specific artifacts from the cathedral and learn more about them -- more about their history and their cultural significance. Donors can discover which artifacts they connect with most, then choose to support restoration of those pieces. It's very personalized; you can own a piece of the cathedral's history forever because you helped fund its restoration."
Engaging With Notre-Dame's Rich History
