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.

Tania Dalton Foundation

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 (TDF) exists to make a meaningful impact to young people in New Zealand.  It has been established to help our youth, 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 been busy this year with their first class of 12 scholarship recipients and only has plans to grow. TDF's 3-year scholarships provide financial assistance, one-on-one support and personal development opportunities.

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.

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 wining 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.

High Performance Sport New Zealand

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.

Business Mentors New Zealand

Hayes Knight supports Business Mentors New Zealand, a not for profit organisation set up to provide a volunteer mentoring service.  Business Mentors New Zealand has steadily grown and developed to become the leading business mentoring service provider to the SME (small to medium-sized enterprise) sector in New Zealand. Hayes Knight has helped many organisations through volunteer mentoring services via Business Mentors New Zealand offering assistance and support to these SME business owners.

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 with 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.

The Regional Sport Excellence Awards organised by Harbour Sport celebrate outstanding sporting achievements, past and present.  New athletes are honoured and inducted into the prestigious Legends of Harbour, Harbour Sport Sports Hall of Fame.  Hayes Knight is a proud sponsor of the Sporting Acknowledgement Awards presented this year to 15 worthy recipients.

Our commitment doesn't end there
