In 1888, John Bateman Harcourt opened the door on what would become the first ever Harcourts office of the fastest growing real estate group in Australasia, and beyond.
For 120 years we’ve proudly worked in our communities everyday to fulfil people’s dreams of achieving a home. Alongside that we have also built a long and enthusiastic history of supporting thousands of community initiatives to benefit tens of thousands of our neighbours.
After asking our Harcourts team in 2008 if there was a better way to invest in the communities where we work, live and play, their overwhelming response led to the launch of The Harcourts Foundation in Australia and New Zealand.
Our Purpose: To provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities.
Our Story So Far
As we grow the Harcourts real estate brand across new countries and markets, we also look forward to building this exciting legacy that is The Harcourts Foundation.
The success of our business relies on the well-being and success of the communities where we operate. And the global success of the Harcourts brand is not just about business success, but about being in a position to make even more of a positive difference to our communities.
In 2008, Harcourts launched The Harcourts Foundation as our own charitable entity for us to raise and donate money to groups focused on benefiting as many people as possible in the communities where our offices operate.
While Harcourts people have a long history of generosity dating back to when our first office opened in 1888, we believe that The Harcourts Foundation is the most meaningful way we can contribute towards building successful vibrant communities where people (including our Harcourts people) are proud to live, work, and play.
