About Friends of NCRD

Friends of NCRD Flower sale.

Friends of NCRD meets the third Tuesday of each month at 10:30 am;  members and guests are always welcome.

Friends of NCRD’s Mission is to support NCRD by promoting it and raising funds for its programs and projects.

In 2022, Friends of NCRD raised more than $27,000 for Youth, Aquatics and Fitness scholarships, together with NCRD programs and projects.

Friends’ volunteers have given generously over the years in support of NCRD. Flower sales, cut flower arrangements in the summer and a variety of bulbs in the fall, have been a major source of fundraising. The Flower Committee and about thirty volunteers helped with daily flower sales over the summer months.

The Plastic Project Committee encouraged community recycling and gifted four outdoor benches to NCRD. Friends of NCRD also collaborated with the Fitness Center on “Pop Goes the Heart”, a February fundraiser for new fitness equipment. 

Without volunteers none of this could happen. Friends of NCRD welcomes new members and volunteers to help support its mission. Become a member of Friends. Volunteer to help with a fundraiser. Be part of the support for North County Recreation District, one of our community’s most valuable resources.

Friends of NCRD is a 501 (c)(3) organized by volunteers dedicated to the support of North County Recreation District.

Recognizing the district’s revenues may be insufficient to cover the rising costs of services and the preservation of the facilities, volunteers formed a non-profit organization in 2008 operating exclusively for charitable purposes. The goal is to provide community support through fundraising and grant writing. Organized separately, but in partnership with NCRD, Friends of NCRD believe NCRD provides vital services for youth, families and older adults in the community.
