The Harcourts Foundation, the charitable arm of Harcourts Group Australia, announced grants to 14 Australian charities during its most recent quarterly funding round.
A total of $51,740 was donated across Australia to benefit charities serving the communities where Harcourts employees live and work.
“Over the past six months, a total of $190,781,000 has been granted by The Harcourts Foundation,” said Julia Eyles, The Harcourts Foundation coordinator.
“This quarter’s group of 14 charities represents a cross-section of causes supported by Harcourts franchisees and team members.”
Harcourts franchise owners in each state nominate and support the organisations that impact the community. Additionally, Harcourts corporate team members who salary sacrifice to the Foundation are given the chance to nominate a specific charity for a grant as part of an initiative called ‘corporate choice grants’, while the Landmark Harcourts network also designates grant recipients.
Since The Harcourts Foundation’s first donation in 2008, over $5 million has been raised. That translates to 686 charities supported, 311 communities impacted and 851 grants made through Harcourts offices in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the USA.
