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.
