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.
GRHRA was awarded a SHRM Foundation Chapter Champion Award in 2016 and would like to continue its efforts to support the research efforts of this SHRM affiliate.
