As investigators try to figure out what caused the Notre Dame Cathedral to burn, many people are wondering how to donate to help fundraise for Notre Dame.

Dozens of fundraising initiatives have already populated many news feeds, the most popular one including an existing appeal by The Friends of Notre Dame charity, which was already fundraising for ongoing renovation work before the blaze.

A new donation page has also been created by the Foundation du Patrimoine, a leading French organization which seeks to preserve France’s heritage and architecture.

Billionaires behind many of France’s top luxury brands have already pledged more than $338 million to help reconstruct the international icon. LVMH Group (LVMHF), which owns Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Givenchy, said that the company, along with the family of CEO Bernard Arnault, said it would put up $226 million.
