Each year, Americans recognize Giving Tuesday as an annual celebration of generosity. Giving Tuesday takes place immediately following Thanksgiving when we take time to show our gratitude and reflect on the blessings in our lives. This year, Giving Tuesday is November 28th. What was created as a simple idea – a day that encourages people to do good – has grown into a movement and it serves as a reminder of the good we can all do in our own communities and for the causes we find important. In this spirit of generosity and in conjunction with this year’s Giving Tuesday, HR Virginia is holding a 50/50 drawing to benefit the SHRM Foundation. Participants can win up to $300 AND can also take a chance at winning a free registration to the 2024 State Conference!
The SHRM Foundation is the 501(c)(3) philanthropic arm of the world’s largest HR professional society, SHRM (Society for Human Resources Management). SHRM represents nearly 325,000 HR professionals across the globe, impacting the lives of more than 235 million workers and their families.
The SHRM Foundation mobilizes the power of HR for positive social change in the workplace. Its robust resources, meaningful partnerships, and evidence-based programming educate and empower HR professionals to hire diverse talent, build inclusive workplaces, prioritize workplace mental health and wellness, develop, and support the next generation of HR professionals, and help employees find purpose at work and beyond. Their scholarships have been awarded to HR professionals in our chapters and can be used for education, certification preparation, and conference attendance.
The 50/50 & conference raffle will go live on Monday, November 27th and the drawing will occur after 8:00am on November 29th. We also have an option to donate directly to the SHRM Foundation. Ticket prices are below; the more you buy, the cheaper they are:

No doubt there are countless options available for you to participate in Giving Tuesday this year, and we encourage you to support the cause(s) that are meaningful to you. But we hope you’ll consider participating in this 50/50 raffle in support of the SHRM foundation and its ongoing efforts to elevate and empower HR as a force for social good.
