Harcourts Foundation

The Harcourts Foundation


In August 2008, Harcourts asked one simple question:


How can we better support the local communities that have supported us?


This one question led to the establishment of The Harcourts Foundation.



"The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving." Albert Einstein


As a global organisation, being socially responsible is not a trend or a marketing exercise. In fact some of the world’s most successful people in fields as diverse as the arts, business, and politics have made huge changes to their lives in recognition of what it means to be in a position to help and the notion that we can all make a difference.


"We cannot build our own future without helping others to build theirs." Bill Clinton


The Harcourts Foundation has raised nearly $4 million since 2008, has assisted hundreds of charitable organisations throughout Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA, and has helped literally thousands of people in need.


"If you're in the luckiest 1 percent of humanity, you owe it to the rest of humanity to think about the other 99 percent." Warren Buffet


We are a '100%' Charity.


No management fees, salaries or running costs of the Harcourts Foundation are taken from our donation account. Our National Board of Directors, Coordinator, Accountant and Regional Ambassadors all donate their time and expertise, meaning 100% of all funds raised go directly to the charities where they are needed most.
