NORD Foundation

The NORD Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds to support the activities of the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission. Individual and corporate donors may restrict their gift to a specific playground or program, or give funds to support NORDC’s priority needs, such as athletic equipment and outfitting new recreation centers. Gifts in any amount are welcome.

Learn more about the opportunities to support a quality recreation system so that every citizen can enjoy the benefits of greater health and wellness and, particularly, our youth and teens have opportunities to develop practical, constructive life skills through self-discipline and teamwork.
