Australia

Ever since the Harcourts Foundation was launched in August 2008, Team Harcourts throughout Australia have been raising money to provide support that helps, grows and enriches their communities.

Whether an office, business owner, sales consultant or personal assistant, members of Harcourts all over Australia are donating to the Harcourts Foundation. The majority of the contributions are from our Harcourts branches, whose business owners and sales consultants contribute a set donation with every single property they sell. In addition, through salary sacrifice, specially organised fundraisers, and regular prize auctions at corporate events of all levels, all Harcourts members are committed to making a difference.

In just eight years, we reached the significant milestone of raising over $4,000,000 globally for our local communities. This huge achievement is one of many milestones that the Harcourts Foundation is sure to reach in the years ahead. Thank you all for your incredible support!

Anna Gooch – Ambassador (Tasmania)
Anna’s aspiration as our Foundation Ambassador in Tasmania is to contribute towards changing people’s lives for the better and making dreams come true.  Since the launch in 2008, each and every one of Harcourts Tasmania’s offices state-wide have come together and make a set donation to the Harcourts Foundation with every property sold. Anna is your key contact with all Harcourts Foundations enquiries, applications and support in Tasmania and she encourages you to contact her at anna.gooch@harcourts.com.au if you would like to know more information on the Harcourts Foundation in Tasmania.

Adrienne Musca – Ambassador (Western Australia)
Adrienne has been the WA Ambassador for Western Australia since the Foundation’s launch in 2008 and is responsible for all grant applications received. The main source of our WA funding is through the auction of donated prizes and the generous support of our Business Owners & offices who bid for these prizes.

Since the Foundation formation, substantial funds have been channeled back into the WA community with the primary aim to assist those who need it most. Preference is given to local entities where the benefit to the local community is maximised, with all funds raised in WA staying in WA.

For Western Australian information on the Harcourts Foundation please contact Adrienne direct – adrienne.musca@harcourts.net.
