In August 2008, Harcourts asked one simple question:
This one question led to the establishment of The Harcourts Foundation.
When The Harcourts Foundation was launched in 2008, we launched a fundamental and significant part of what the name ‘Harcourts’ stands for in the hearts and minds of the communities around us. The Harcourts Foundation really is at the heart of our core values – people first, doing the right thing, being courageous and fun and laughter. The Harcourts Foundation is the embodiment of what it means to be part of Harcourts.
To date, all funds have been raised by dedicated Harcourts team members and clients through fundraising events, auctions, workplace giving, individual donations or ‘off the top’ donations, giving back an amount from the sale of each property.
No management fees, salaries or running costs are taken from our donation account. Our national Board of Directors, Coordinator, Accountant and Regional Ambassadors all donate their time and expertise, meaning 100% of all funds raised go directly to the charities where they are needed most.
No matter the size of your organisation, the Harcourts Foundation not only gives back to those affected by large scale cataclysmic disasters but to charitable community organisations or assists with helping individuals in need. Grants applications must be requested for a specific event, project or initiative.
