Seven Australian-based charities have received funding grants totalling $46,000 as part of the latest round of funding grants from The Harcourts Foundation.
In Queensland, a grant of $15,000 was provided to the North Queensland Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund and $10,000 was provided to Butterfly Babies, a charity within the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital Foundation.
Three charities in South Australia received funding grants including the Legacy Club of Adelaide for $5,000, Operation Flinders Foundation for $5,000 and St Vincent de Paul Society for $1,000.
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 $2 million in donations 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.harcourts.com.au and download the grant application form. We look forward to funding as many applicants as possible,” Mr Green said.
The upcoming grant application deadlines are:
