Harcourts Foundation

Ever since the Harcourts Foundation was launched in August 2008, Team Harcourts throughout New Zealand have been raising money to provide support that helps, grows and enriches their communities.

Whether an office, business owner, sales consultant or personal assistant, members of Harcourts all over New Zealand are donating to the Harcourts Foundation on a weekly basis, through salary sacrifice, ‘off the top’ contributions from commissions or through specially organized events. We are proud to say that Team Harcourts New Zealand has now raised over $620,000 and donated to over 100 organisations.

 

 

 

 

 

About the foundation

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. The Harcourts Foundation is the embodiment of what it means to be part of Harcourts.

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 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.

 

 

 

Who can apply for a grant from the Harcourts Foundation?

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.
