Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral - The Fondation de la basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal creates a Quebec solidarity fund and organizes a benefit concert

MONTRÉAL, April 17, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - In response to the tragic fire that resulted in the partial destruction of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, the administrators of the Fondation de la basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal wish to take tangible action to show their solidarity and Quebec people's support.

"We are clearly saddened and aggrieved by this immense loss to the heritage and history of the French people and the entire world. This is our way to show our support and help ensure the reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral," said Pierre L. Baribeau, President of the Fondation de la basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal.

To that end, the Fondation de la basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal is creating the Fonds québécois de solidarité pour la reconstruction de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris [Québec Solidarity Fund for the Reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral].


You are warmly invited to contribute to this act of solidarity by making an online donation to the Foundation. Just click on the following link. https://fondationbasiliquenddm.org/en/dons-english/

All donations will be remitted to Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral and used only to fund reconstruction work. You have until December 31, 2019 to make your donation.

*There is no guarantee that a tax receipt can be issued as the Canada Revenue Agency hasn't yet acknowledge this donation abroad. To confirm.


Notre-Dame Basilica's titular organist, Pierre Grandmaison, will perform a concert on Sunday, May 5, 2019, at 7 p.m. Tickets will go on sale shortly and cost $30 plus tax if purchased online or $35 if purchased at the door. The one-hour program will be unveiled soon. All proceeds will go to the Fonds québécois de solidarité pour la reconstruction de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris [Québec Solidarity Fund for the Reconstruction of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral]. More details to come.
