About the 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). 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 that have a direct and practical impact in advancing the HR profession.
HR Florida Contributions
HR Florida has continuously been a leader in contributions for the SHRM Foundation. Our goal each year is to be the State with the highest amount of contributions. We strive each year to be at the top of the list and that is where we have found ourselves many times. The chapters’ contributions are essential to our success!
