We proudly support The SHRM Foundation, charity affiliate of SHRM.  Each year, SBHRA raises money for The SHRM Foundation to help fund research grants, scholarships for HR professionals, and HR educational resources.  Look for our fundraisers at designated events.  

We have received The SHRM Foundation's Chapter Champion Award annually since 2013.  The Chapter Champion award recognizes SHRM chapters that actively work to support the SHRM Foundation.  Each year, more than 70% of SHRM chapters support the Foundation's annual campaign though active fundraising and Chapter contribution.
