Making a difference with The Harcourts Foundation
We’re extremely proud of the fantastic work that The Harcourts Foundation does – and the latest amount that we’ve raised here in Otago.
We believe it’s our obligation as a global organisation to be socially responsible. That’s why, in 2008, Harcourts set up The Harcourts Foundation – an initiative with the aim of changing people’s lives.
Since then, The Harcourts Foundation has raised over $4m, assisting charitable organisations throughout New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the USA. $1m of that was raised and donated right here in New Zealand, helping thousands of people in need.
And we’re delighted to announce that Harcourts Highland Group has now raised a grand total of $15,648 for The Harcourts Foundation.
Harcourts Highland Group’s CEO Kelvin Collins is thrilled with the results:
“We’re always looking to support the local community in any way we can and, thanks to our clients and colleagues, we’ve been able to donate a considerable amount to help people in need. Well done to everyone involved.”
100 per cent of this money goes directly to the charities that need it most. This is because the brilliant volunteers that keep us running donate their time and expertise – cutting out any salaries and running costs.
They work hard to organise events, auctions, workplace giving, individual contributions and ‘off the top’ donations whereby The Foundation receives a cut from the sale of each property.
Just some of the charities which have benefited from our donations are the Otago Life Education Trust, The Friends of Children in Hospital, Goldfields Primary School in Cromwell and Catlins Search and Rescue.
Supporting the community.
We also put a considerable amount of money into supporting our local community. We’re dedicated to helping children get the best possible start in life, and that’s why we donate to schools, sports team and children’s charities in Otago.
We continue to donate to a variety of local and national causes and intend to keep raising money for them for many years to come.
We’d like to thank all of our clients, colleagues and partners who help us to provide for people in need.
