Trust Fondation de France for Emergency Action!

Fondation de France is the leading philanthropy network in France to provide emergency aid to countries facing crises. Fondation de France has mobilized funds and launched campaigns in the past few years for people affected by the war in Ukraine, earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, and recently the earthquake in Morocco. Relying on the strength of a network of local partners, Fondation de France has exceptional knowledge and experience in emergency relief. This allows efficient aid in the very first hours after a disaster strikes, and support to local populations from those who know them best.

After the fire in Notre Dame de Paris, Fondation de France was one of the few organizations trusted by the government to raise funds for the restoration of this iconic Parisian monument. Friends of Fondation de France is a relay of these fundraising campaigns in the United States and allows to make a contribution that will make a real difference.
