The foundation was established in 2008, following recognition that as a global organisation, we have a social responsibility and desire to help those in need and make a change. 100% of funds raised go directly to the charities, where they are needed most.

Chosing to forego the annual team holiday, we instead ran a funraiser for the charity The Hutt Street Centre. Their invaluable work helps to end homelessness, and protect the vulnerable & marginalised within our society.
Offering meals, showers & laundry facilities, access to health care, aged living program, recreation activities, training & employment programs, legal aid and home assistance, as well as an extensive outreach program, the charity changes the lives of
thousands of people.
The team at Harcourts Sheppard raised $1,224 towards the cause, and spent 3 days volunteering at the centre. It was a very moving experience, and brings social responsibility and looking after one another to the forefront of our minds.
For the last couple of years our team has participated in the Walk A Mile in their Shoes Campaign for White Ribbon Australia. This is a National campaign that sees Harcourts staff in every state come together as one team, done a pair of heels and walk in unity against domestic violence.
We are proud to say we raised $2,500 towards the cause, and collectively Harcourts Australia has raised over $100,000 each year.
