The SHRM Foundation is a values-based organization that advances our profession in a number of ways. The Foundation champions workforce and workplace transformation by providing:
- Research-based HR solutions for challenging inclusion issues facing employees and potential employees
- Scholarships to educate and develop HR professionals and students to make change happen
- Opportunities for HR professionals to make a difference in their local communities
We support the SHRM Foundation’s vision to empower HR professionals to build inclusive organizations where all all employees thrive and organizations achieve success. We do this by inspiring the HR community throughout the state to donate their time, talent and treasure.
Body: Encouraging chapter members to volunteer their time to support the SHRM Foundation mission is an excellent way to keep members active and engaged. Volunteer opportunities range from event coordination to fundraising and everything in between.
The Foundation awards a number of scholarships to professionals and students to obtain undergraduate or graduate degrees, obtain their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification, or attend SHRM conferences and seminars. HR professionals who volunteer their talents review scholarship applications, consult on Foundation publications and more.
Chapter leaders can find resources for encouraging members to volunteer their talents.

At both the state and local level, HR Indiana SHRM and local chapters engage in fundraising activities to support the SHRM Foundation. Every dollar raised goes to support the Foundation’s scholarship and thought-leadership activities.
In 2017, we were number five on the list of top 10 state council fundraisers!
The Indiana State Council and our Indiana chapters have a long history of supporting the SHRM Foundation. We look forward to working together to carry the goals of the SHRM Foundation into the future.
