The tax-exempt NAHR Foundation was formed to allow the Academy to go beyond its role of honoring professional achievement and serving member personal development to furthering professionalism in the field at large. The NAHR Foundation does this by conducting a program of various projects and studies that reflect the interest of its members and is responsive to the needs of the profession, business, government and society.
The Academy Foundation develops and supports unique programs and studies that enhance the human resources profession in ways that exemplify the special nature of the Academy by utilizing the immense individual and collective wisdom of the Fellows.
Also, the Foundation, through its various programs and initiatives, strives to increase the knowledge base in the field and develop in students and other qualified individuals interest in the human resources profession as a career.
It is through the collaborative efforts of the Fellows that the work of the profession is advanced.
