The Harcourts Foundation has raised over $5 million since 2008, given grants to over 900 charitable organisations throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA, and helped literally thousands of people in need.
We’re proud to say that Harcourts has been a part of our communities since founder JB Harcourt opened the door to his first real estate office in Wellington, New Zealand in 1888. Over time, our offices and people have generously created a history of giving through sponsoring and supporting thousands of people in need. Being caring members of our local communities ensures a better quality of life for everyone.
When we launched The Harcourts Foundation 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.
At Harcourts we aim to change lives and make dreams come true – the work of The Harcourts Foundation is a continuation of this.
How do we raise funds?
To date, all funds have been raised by dedicated Harcourts team members and clients through fundraising events, auctions, workplace giving, individual donations but mostly from our partner offices giving back a donation with the sale of every property.
No management fees, salaries or running costs are taken from our donation account. Our national Board of Directors, coordinators, 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.
