Network raises over $2M in 5 years

Harcourts’ charity arm, The Harcourts Foundation, has raised over $2,260,000 for charities across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa since it was established five years ago.

Managing director of Harcourts International, Mike Green, said raising over $2 million for charities in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa was a landmark achievement and evidence of the group’s core values of “people first” and “doing the right thing”.

“At Harcourts we aim to change lives and make dreams come true – the work of The Harcourts Foundation is a continuation of this,” he said.

The Harcourts Foundation was formed in 2008 as a way for the network to give back to its communities.

Funds have been raised by Harcourts' team members and clients through fundraising events, auctions, workplace giving and individual donations.

A majority of donations had been made through 'off the top' giving, which was an amount donated by Harcourts offices from the sale of properties.

The foundation has donated funds to over 150 Australian charities, including the North Queensland Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Foundation.

Funds have also been used to help the lives of thousands, including those affected by recent disasters such as the 2013 Tasmanian bushfires, the 2011 Queensland floods, the 2009 Victorian bushfires and the Christchurch earthquakes.
