The launch of “The Harcourts Foundation” in South Africa

This registered organisation will strive to assist and further aid in the support and improvement of those individuals who find themselves in desperate situations.

Regarded as the most successful and fastest growing real estate brand in Australasia, the Foundation was launched in 2008 by Mike Green (Managing Director of Harcourts International Ltd) with great hopes that the company, which was so fortunate, could make a difference to others in need of a helping hand. Soon after, The Harcourts Foundation was established within Australia and New Zealand with great success, already having risen over $ 1 million dollars (AUD).

It is the company’s aim to assist the many communities in which they conduct business. It is Harcourts intention for money that is raised in a particular area to directly lead to the enhancement of people’s lives within that area. Supporting reputable organisations, the Foundation will donate the raised money to specific establishments who are able to provide aid to a large number of people in need.

“We are truly appreciative to be in a position where we are able to make a positive difference in the lives of those who may need a helping hand. With the continually financial support from The Harcourts Foundation, we hope to grow and enrich our local communities,” states Richard Gray, CEO of Harcourts South Africa.

He continues, “We are also proud to note that 100% of the money raised for The Harcourts Foundation will be donated back to the community, as Harcourts Real Estate is funding all the Foundation’s running costs.”

The Harcourts team are devoted to voluntary fundraising efforts, with the inclusion of ‘per sale’ contributions. The distribution of grants will be given to successful applicants on a quarterly basis.  

As a recipient of funds from The Harcourts Foundation, specific criteria need to be met. By completing an official application form available at any Harcourts office or on The Harcourts Foundation website, potential beneficiaries can be identified.

“Due to our immense coverage, with Harcourts Offices located throughout South Africa, we plan to touch the lives and improve the situation of many through this generous initiative, as well as further contributing to the legacy that is Harcourts,” concludes Gray.
