What is GiveSmart? • An online fundraising platform that provides a virtual fundraising experience for its users. • For more information, please see their website - givesmart.com What does the SHRM Foundation/GiveSmart/SHRM State Council partnership look like? • The SHRM Foundation is engaging in a pilot partnership with GiveSmart by purchasing a national license with the company. • The SHRM Foundation will extend this license to all State Councils. Each state council may select to have all chapters participate in the pilot. What is the cost of GiveSmart to the Chapters and Councils? • Chapters and councils have no fee to participate in this online platform because the SHRM Foundation is absorbing this licensing cost and the overall assistance GiveSmart provides its users. What is the SHRM State Council responsible for? • For each state council to participate, they must designate one administrator, preferably, the State Foundation Chair, who will have access and codes to build the auction, raffle, or whatever fundraising experience they wish to have. • That one Administrator will be trained in how to set this auction up online. • The Administrator will have a SHRM Foundation contact to go to with any questions. • State Council Directors should identify 5 chapters in their state to participate. Does every State Council have to do this? • No – participation in this pilot is optional. Are there federal, state, and local laws around fundraising activities? • As a reminder, all fundraising activities should be conducted in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws. As you know, certain forms of fundraising, such as raffles, lotteries, silent auctions, or similar events are subject to strict state and local laws; which may include registration requirements or other restrictions. Please do consult with your attorneys to ensure you are complying with any applicable state and local laws in relation to these types of events.
