Big Brothers Big Sisters
Big Brothers Big Sisters' mission is to provide youth with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships. For children (Littles) matched with a mentor (Bigs) through Big Brothers Big Sisters, having one person in their corner means the difference between graduating high school or dropping out to become part of the minimum-wage workforce. Last year, they served 3,538 local children with a 100% success rate in graduating from high school. Their Inaugural Cornhole Tournament at the Newport Dunes on September 29, 2018 is a fun-filled, family friendly event offering food, music and an official cornhold competition. This grant will support this signature fundraiser to provide more children on their waitlist with much-needed mentors to encourage economic independence and help them develop into contributing members of society.
Desert Aids Project - Desert Aids Walk
Our Harcourts Desert Homes office in Palm Springs, California, recently participated in the 2018 Desert AIDS Project's Desert Aids Walk and raised over nearly $7,500 for the cause. We helped them out with a $500 grant from The Harcourts Foundation which will fund 25 free and confidential HIV tests.
