ALIGNMENT WITH THE NOLA GOLD RUGBY ACADEMY

THE FUTURE IN THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS
The City of New Orleans and NOLA Gold Rugby Foundation GOAL is to be a pilot model program for the establishment of the Major League Rugby Foundation and will work to expand this initiative to all MLR cities.
A CULTURE OF IMPACT
The leadership of NOLA Gold Rugby may have been a part of big hits on the pitch, but off the field, they have a rich history of contributing and establishing non-profit foundations which impact the community.
The leadership are founders of Louisiana Rugby Cooperation the Non-profit tied to New Orleans Rugby Football Club established in 2011.
Many of the front office personnel currently sit on the board for local nonprofits and charitable organizations. In addition, founders of this organization have aligned the NOLA Gold Rugby Foundation’s mission with local counterparts on both sides of the river. They had a hand in the formation of Project Cafe Reconcile on the Eastbank and Project Cafe Hope on the Westbank.
