The New Orleans Recreation Development Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that helps to strengthen the resources of NORD by linking private and corporate support through donations and sponsorships, expertise, marketing and awareness.


  • All 17 NORD pools are open at no charge! However, proper swim attire is required to jump in. Help assure all of our children and families have the opportunity to enjoy the pools by dropping off swimsuits at any NORD center, City Hall, or you can purchase a swimsuit through the Walmart swimsuit registry set up by the Foundation.  All swimsuits will be either delivered to or picked up by the Foundation and dropped off to NORD.

  • Host a fundraiser! Have a great idea? Reach out to the Foundation and share your vision.

  • Host an information event for potential donors.


  • Change the life of a child – Whether you are volunteer coach or helping out at a special community event, NORD offers various volunteer opportunities for you or your business.

  • For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact our NORD’s Volunteer/Booster Club Coordinator at 504-658-3052 or
