Eight Australian-based charities have received funding grants totalling $39,411 as part of the latest round of funding grants from The Harcourts Foundation.

In Queensland, a grant of $3,051 was provided to the Caboolture Regional Domestic Violence Service, $4,560 was granted to Supporting Chemotherapy in Cooloola, and $15,000 was provided to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International.

A $5,000 grant was provided to the Nature Foundation South Australia and a further $1,000 was granted to Life Education South Australia.

Two charities in Tasmania also received funding grants including the University of Tasmania Foundation for $5,000 and the Edmund Rice Camps Tasmania for $4,000.

In Western Australia, the Breast Cancer Network Australia also received a funding grant of $1,800.

The money granted will provide these charitable organisations with the funds to carry out important research and development projects, purchase vital equipment for those in need, and run significant community projects and services.

Mike Green, Managing Director of Harcourts International, is thrilled that The Harcourts Foundation is able to provide much needed support to charitable organisations.

“I’m incredibly proud of The Harcourts Foundation and am so thankful that as an organisation we are able to help so many communities in need. Our local communities have supported us so well over the years and I’m thrilled that we are now in a position to give back to them,” Mr Green said.

Established in August 2008, The Harcourts Foundation aims to provide financial support that helps, grows and enriches local communities, and has received over to $1.7 million in donations in its first four years of operation.

To date, all funds have been raised by dedicated Harcourts team members and clients in the form of fundraising events, auctions, workplace giving, individual donations or ‘off the top’ giving (a percentage calculated from each sales commission).

“I encourage all Australian charities to jump online at www.harcourtsfoundation.org and download the grant application form. We look forward to funding as many applicants as possible,” Mr Green said.

Be sure to look out for grant application deadlines:

  • 1 July – 30 September 2012
