About Us

Who We Are

 The NORD Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds to support the activities of the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission. 

Our History

 An ordinance, creating the thirteen-member New Orleans Development Recreation Commission (NORD Commission) and the private 501(c)(3) New Orleans Recreation Development Foundation (NORD Foundation) to facilitate investment in its work, was approved by 74% of voters in October 2010.
