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. 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.
