Recognition of SHRM Chapters and State Councils

With the support from SHRM chapters, state councils and volunteer leaders, the SHRM Foundation is able to fulfill our mission to champion workforce and workplace transformation. THANK YOU!

To honor chapters, councils, and volunteer leaders who go above-and-beyond, the SHRM Foundation has created the following recognition awards. As a charity, our work is only possible through the generosity of passionate individuals, organizations and SHRM chapters and state councils.  

Top 10 Fundraising State Councils


The Top 10 Fundraising list honors SHRM state councils that have the highest total annual contributions each year. These totals comprise all gifts made by and on behalf of the state council, including individual gifts and corporate gifts.

Top fundraising state councils are recognized on the SHRM Foundation’s website and in the monthly newsletter, are awarded a digital badge to display on the council website, and receive an award from the SHRM Foundation at the SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition.
