Among others I've read/heard about.

Billionaire Pledges $113 Million to Rebuild Notre Dame

Quote:
François-Henri Pinault -- chairman and CEO of Kering, the French-based luxury group behind Gucci, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent and other world-renowned brands--has pledged over $110 million towards the rebuilding of the Notre Dame cathedral.

Pinault, who is married to actress Salma Hayek, said in a statement that he plans to pay through his family’s investment firm, Artemis, for any work that needs to be done following Monday’s catastrophic fire, according to AFP.

Some deep pockets out there. I read elsewhere that in total there was around $339 million pledged. Not sure if that is Euros or dollars, either way that is a lot of money.

And now Apple has pledged to help with the rebuild. Does not say how much.

Craftsmen built Notre Dame eight centuries ago. Now it may be up to robots to save it.

Quote:
As the first images of charred wreckage inside the Notre Dame cathedral appeared online Tuesday, engineers around the world said one observation was already clear: to return the ancient structure to its glorious past, builders probably will turn to cutting-edge technology that many associate with the future.

Even before engineers had been able to access the deepest corners of the still smoldering structure, design experts, preservationists and engineers were already contemplating which modern technologies might be brought to bear to restore one of Europe’s most iconic structures to its fabled past.
