Harcourts Foundation




Our Purpose:


"To provide support that helps, grows, and enriches our communities"


In the business world around us, the term ‘corporate social responsibility’ is a global phenomenon. Consumers and employees scrutinise businesses they’re looking to buy from or a build a career with to see how much they care and how genuinely committed they are to those in their communities who need a helping hand.


We’re proud to say that Harcourts has been a part of our communities since founder JB Harcourt opened the door to his first real estate office in Wellington, New Zealand in 1888.


Over time, our offices and people have generously created a history of giving through sponsoring and supporting literally thousands of people in need.
The Harcourts Foundation formalises this support by helping to grow and enrich the communities in which we operate.





The Story So Far...


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.


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.
