“After asking our Harcourts team if there was a better way to invest in the communities where we work, live and play, their overwhelming response led to the 2008 launch of our own charity, The Harcourts Foundation. For over 125 years, Harcourts has enthusiastically supported a myriad of community initiatives and our Foundation continues this purpose with our aim ‘to provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities’.
Our Foundation really is at the heart of our core values – people first, doing the right thing, being courageous and fun and laughter – and is the embodiment of what it means to be part of Harcourts. Now operating in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the United States, The Harcourts Foundation has raised more than $4 million dollars, made over 700 grants to charitable organisations, and assisted literally thousands of people in need, with 100% of funds raised going directly back into our communities.
As we grow the Harcourts real estate brand across new countries and markets, we also look forward to building this exciting legacy that is The Harcourts Foundation.”
