Barnard was acknowledged for being completely committed to this cause and was selected for his business success and community contributions. Barnard accepted his award at buildOn's annual fundraising event, the buildOn Dinner.

In 2009, five executive team members from Paramount Equity traveled to the West African country of Mali, where they broke ground on a children's schoolhouse that they raised money to build.
The team consisted of Paramount Equity co-owners Hayes Barnard and Matt Dawson, Executive Vice President of Operations Michele Magee, Vice President of Sales Matt Hurych and Executive Administrative Assistant Kathryn Johnson. The group spent eight days in Mali, living and working amongst the villagers. The schoolhouse is now completed and educates 150 children.
