ADOPT A SAINT GERMAIN STAR™
AND SEE YOUR NAME IN THE STARS
THE ADOPT A SAINT GERMAIN STAR™ CAMPAIGN
Please be aware that we are in the process of re-establishing our tax-exempt, 501(c)3 charity status. Consequently we have temporarily suspended all fund-rasing activities including Adopt-a-Star. Please contact us for further details.
The Adopt A Saint Germain Star™ Campaign has been a fundraising effort by American Friends for the Preservation of Saint Germain des Prés Church and The Preservation of Saint Germain des Prés Foundation to garner funds for the restoration of the full church interior as detailed in the Restoration Catalogue. The U.S. Adopt-a-Star effort has been a major success; it mirrors a similar campaign in France.
Given the interest in Adopt-a-Star, there are currently very few stars left to adopt. We await a further allotment of stars in the near future. In the meantime we invite you to visit the interactive ceiling below to see the full constellation of stars adopted by visitors from all over the world.
The minimum donation to adopt a Saint Germain star is $100. Please click on the button below to make your $100 (or more) donation through a credit card or PayPal. Be sure to write "Adopt a Star" in the notes section when making your tax-deductible* donation.
Once your donation is processed, an email will be sent to you, usually the next day. It contains a code to be used to claim your star. Return to the interactive ceiling map on our website. Choose your star, enter the provided code, and fill out any information you wish to be shown to visitors to the interactive map.
Voilà! You have adopted your very own star and contributed to the preservation of an irreplaceable historical monument. We can't thank you enough for your generosity, merci beaucoup!
During the pause in renovation works and while we renew our tax-exempt charity status, we have temporarily suspended fundraising activities in the U.S., including 'Adopt-a-Star'. Please contact us for further details.
