- A donation of 10 million euros on behalf of all the entities of Groupe BPCE to the French Heritage Foundation (Fondation du patrimoine) dedicated to the renovation of Notre-Dame de Paris;
- the opening of an online collection, via Le Pot Commun, to enable employees of Groupe BPCE in France and internationally to donate to the firefighters of Paris and throughout France;
- as a major provider of banking services to SMEs, professionals, craftspeople and associations, Groupe BPCE is reviewing how best it can support all those who will participate in the restoration of this edifice;
- finally, other initiatives will be implemented to complement these measures, notably drawing on our 9 million cooperative shareholders and 30 million clients.
