The SHRM Foundation Mission
The mission of the SHRM Foundation is to maximize the impact of the HR profession on organizational decision-making and performance by promoting innovation, education, research, and the use of research-based knowledge.
The SHRM Foundation's work includes:
Innovative academic research grants
The SHRM Foundation is a leading funder of HR research. Over the past three years, the SHRM Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million in grants to fund rigorous, original academic research with practical implications for HR management practice.
The SHRM Foundation awards $170,000 annually in education and certification scholarships to professional and student SHRM members, and doctoral students.
The SHRM Foundation's Effective Practice Guidelines series make research findings easily accessible to HR practitioners. The Foundation has also created a series of educational DVDs for SHRM chapter programming, staff trainings, and executive education sessions.
In addition, the SHRM Foundation conducts an annual fundraising campaign to support our programming. We are grateful for the generous support we receive from SHRM chapters and state councils, individuals, corporations and others. Your financial support is vital to ensure that the SHRM Foundation can continue this important work. Donate today!
Thanks to the generosity of our members, NOARK raised over $500 for the SHRM Foundation for 2012, and total contributions to the SHRM Foundation were over $1,000 for 2012. This exceeds our goal of $750 for 2012! Our fundraising events this year included monthly change bowls, dollar challenges, and two Happy Hour and Networking events. We would like to express our thanks to members and to Louie’s Bar & Grill in Fayetteville and Crabby’s Seafood Bar & Grill in Rogers for supporting our fundraising activities. We look forward to another great fundraising year in 2013.
