SHRM Foundation...

The SHRM Foundation was founded in 1966 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The SHRM Foundation is a legally separate organization and is not funded by SHRM membership dues. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors from the HR profession, including academics, practitioners and representatives from SHRM. The Foundation funds research, publications and education to advance the HR profession and enhance the effectiveness of HR professionals. To support its important work, the SHRM Foundation conducts an annual fundraising campaign. All contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible. The Foundation promotes research, innovation and the use of research-based knowledge. With an annual budget of approximately $1 million, it funds major research projects and scholarships that have a direct and practical impact in advancing the HR profession. Every gift the Foundation receives, including donations from our chapter and members, will be used to deliver 300+ scholarships in 2018 and continue the Foundation's work to engage and integrate military veterans in the workplace. Additionally, our contributions supported the launch of Innovation Grants, the Foundation's newest funding opportunity that supports SHRM state councils and chapters working to improve their communities and build inclusive organizations.
