In 2017 and 2018 we will be building a suite of complimentary products for you use in work and life.
Meet some of our scholarship winners from past years. Become a SHRM Foundation supporter.
Volunteer leaders from SHRM chapters and state councils are
some of the SHRM Foundation’s most dedicated supporters. And as a non-profit
charity organization, the SHRM Foundation’s work is only possible through the
generosity of others who believe in our vision to empower HR professionals to
build inclusive organizations.
The provided resources are specifically for SHRM chapters and state councils to assist their efforts to educate their communities about inclusion challenges, make a difference in their local communities and raise funds for the SHRM Foundation.
The basic checklist
Designate a SHRM Foundation Chair or Director to lead your chapter or council Foundation activities.
Share with your members about the SHRM Foundation and present the 10 minute PowerPoint presentation about the current inclusion initiative: employing the aging workforce.
Ask your members, and strongly encourage your board members, to join Team Empower by making a donation of $30 or more to the SHRM Foundation and pledging to support our inclusion initiative.
Host a fundraising event to benefit the SHRM Foundation.
Make a donation from chapter or council funds to the SHRM Foundation by December 31.

The advanced checklist

Encourage members to apply for SHRM Foundation scholarships, available for academic studies, SHRM certification, and professional development. Work closely with your Certification Chair, Education Chair, and College Relations Chair to launch a campaign to announce the scholarships, offer support during the application process, and to celebrate winners from your chapter or state.
Host a full session or chapter meeting about the employing the aging workforce. Partner with your Workforce Readiness Chair to poll your member with the SHRM Preparing for an Aging Workforce Chapter Survey to compare your members' readiness for the aging workforce to the national survey fielded by SHRM. Share and discuss the results with your members.
