The Harcourts Foundation in South Africa will continue to expand and grow to achieve the Foundations' purpose to provide support that helps, grows and enriches our communities.
Already passionate and committed to helping their communities and the members within them that have fallen on hard times, Harcourts Real Estate (South Africa) have proudly announce the launch of 'The Harcourts Foundation' within the country. The 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 fast 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 approximately R45 million.
It's 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 helpin 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."
