Our Community

At Hayes Knight we are committed to investing in our local communities through holding various community positions and sponsorships. We are proud to be associated with supporting excellence and emerging talent.


Hayes Knight are proud to be associated with the Tania Dalton Foundation as a capability partner providing accounting advice, support, and services.

The Tania Dalton Foundation exists to make a meaningful impact on young people in New Zealand.  It has been established to help young New Zealanders, from all kinds of circumstances and at different stages of their development, to unlock their talent and their best selves, for their sport and for themselves.

The foundation has awarded 24 scholarships to young sports women in 2018 & 2019. Tania Dalton Foundation’s 3-year scholarships provide financial assistance, one-on-one mentoring support, and personal development opportunities to the recipients.

Tania’s close ties to the North Shore make this charity close to our hearts and we are looking forward to helping them achieve all their goals.


Hayes Knight is proud of the biennial franchise survey produced by Franchise Association of New Zealand. As active members of the Association, we have a number of clients that value our expertise in franchise matters and we are committed to providing specialised support to this growing franchise community.

Hayes Knight is proudly supporting a new charity called Timeout. Timeout connects generous bach/holiday home owners with terminally ill people so they can spend some quality time with their friends and family. If you have a bach or holiday home and would like to get involved, get in touch with Timeout by clicking here, or take a look at this piece that featured on Seven Sharp.

Jacko Gill Sponsorship


Hayes Knight has entered into a four-year partnership with North Shore track & field Olympian, Jacko Gill, heralded as the most talented junior shot putter ever.  Jacko holds multiple age group world records.  He is the youngest ever male world junior champion, winning the World Junior (U20) title in 2010 aged just 15. Jacko went on to defend that title in 2012, aged 17, and was the youngest competitor in the top eight at the 2015 World Championships by nearly three years, aged just 20.  Jacko then began his Olympic journey at just 21 with a ninth place at the Rio Olympic Games. By providing funding and accounting support to Jacko, we hope to go a small way to making Jacko’s journey to future success that much easier.  Jacko’s sponsorship is an extension to the support we provide to High Performance Sport New Zealand athlete’s as a partner in the Athlete Friendly Network.



Hayes Knight is a partner in High Performance Sport New Zealand’s Athlete Friendly Network.  The Athlete Friendly Network is a community of businesses with a shared interest in helping New Zealand’s best athletes win on the world stage.  The Network connects businesses interested in supporting New Zealand’s sporting heroes and offers a way for those businesses to leverage that support in their community.  In turn, the athletes have access to quality services, resources, and expertise for use in and out of their sport environment.  Hayes Knight has assisted many athletes over the years, providing them with advice and cost-effective solutions to managing ongoing accounting and tax requirements to enable them to focus on their sporting performance.

North Harbour Hockey Association



Hayes Knight is a proud sponsor and partner of the North Harbour Hockey Association.  The Association is the second largest hockey association in New Zealand, and has a strong community focus.  With plans for a national stadium to be built at North Harbour’s Rosedale Park, the Association requires strong governance and financial support.


Hayes Knight is proud to hold a corporate membership with the North Harbour Club, and three of our rising stars are founding members of the Club’s new initiative – NEXT – whose purpose it is to seek out the next generation of leaders from within the community. This affiliation gives us exposure to the immense knowledge, experience and networks within the North Harbour Business area. The Club also undertakes impressive work with its Charitable Trust and celebrates excellence in the local community through its famous AIMES awards, held annually.

Our commitment doesn’t end there

Hayes Knight also acts for a variety of not-for-profit organisations. We help them succeed through applying business principles and managing their finances so they can fulfil their charitable vision.
