THE FOUNDATION

SAVING THE 

OLDEST CHURCH 

IN PARIS 

WHO ARE WE?

American Friends for the Preservation of Saint Germain des Prés is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to fund the restoration of Paris's oldest church.  We work with our French counterparts at The Preservation of Saint Germain des Prés Foundation to garner donations in the pursuit of preserving history.  Our organization plans to initially support Provisional Phase 1 of the restoration process.

 

Our mission is to foster an appreciation for French culture and arts among the general public in the United States.  We hope to achieve this, in part, by participating in the restoration of the Church of Saint Germain des Prés, so it may continue to serve its parishioners and welcome hundreds of visitors who come each day to see its unparalleled beauty.

 

Saint Germain des Prés' history and beauty touch the lives of Parisians and Americans alike.  It is your passion as Americans for this monument's eclectic and rich heritage that made the formation of this foundation possible.
