Community & Sponsorships

Supporting Ronald McDonald House

DFK Hirn Newey and DFK ANZ are proud to support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) through a variety of engagement, sponsorship and fundraising events in the community.

Our member firms and teams get involved in volunteer initiatives and events, as well as contributing funds in support of RMHC’s vital work helping sick children.

In addition, member firms support houses in their local areas and raise funds via team events, fun runs, walks, working bees, morning teas and workplace giving.

We’re proud to support RMHC and help houses around Australia and New Zealand continue their great work.

DFK Australia New Zealand sponsored the 2015 Start-up Smart Awards

We believe there are no limits in business, just endless possibilities. It takes guts and determination to take an idea and build an opportunity. It takes even more to keep going through the challenging times and rise to the top. That’s why we’re extremely proud to sponsor The Start-up Smart Award, which recognises the best and brightest emerging businesses in Australia.

Who are the next business superstars?

DFK Hirn Newey is an SME too, along with the other DFK independent firms, so we understand what’s required to successfully operate and grow a business in this space. The enthusiasm, commitment and vision of the business owners involved in the awards each year is inspiring and we always look forward to providing support to the entrants and winners too.

DFK ANZ Chairman Stephen was proud to be one of the judges in 2015 and presented the prizes at the Awards night which was held in Melbourne on April 16.

The categories for 2015 were:

If you’re not a start up yourself, but know someone who is, encourage them to enter these awards. Encouraging, recognising and supporting the entrepreneurial spirit is what these awards are all about!


Our partners and staff also support various local community groups, such as churches and sporting organisations, serving as bookkeepers, accountants, board members and business advisers.
