    SHRM Foundation Completes Successful 2009 Annual Campaign

    By Laurie Perry, Development Manager

    The SHRM Foundation is very pleased to announce that we reached—and

    exceeded—our fundraising goals in our 2009 Annual Campaign. With your

    outstanding support, we raised a record-high $745,949 from SHRM chapters,

    state councils, corporations and individuals. This money funds educational

    resources, reports, scholarships and academic research grants that advance

    the knowledge base of the HR profession. In a year that saw the stock

    market bouncing up and down, shaky consumer confidence, and flat personal

    income, this level of fundraising success is truly a remarkable

    accomplishment—thank you!

    We are truly grateful for the ongoing financial support we receive from

    SHRM chapters and state councils. Your efforts on behalf of the SHRM

    Foundation truly make a difference. Chapters and state councils have

    maintained their strong levels of support, contributing nearly $462,000

    (62% of the Annual Campaign total). More than 180 chapters (about one-third

    of all participating SHRM chapters) increased their donations over 2008

    levels, including 40 who increased their donations by $500 or more; in

    addition, 25 state councils increased their donations!

    The Foundation’s “Honor Roll” brochure, which lists all donors and

    highlights our programmatic accomplishments, will be released this spring.
