Giving Back to the Community

In 2013 the Big Sky SHRM Board of Directors decided to combine our Silent Auction fundraiser that supports the National SHRM Foundation with an opportunity for our members to give back to our community as well. Since then we have donated over $4000.00 to local non profits who provide services that support the mission of our Chapter.
In 2015 we expanded the program to include member socials with a fundraising component and in 2016 we added volunteer opportunities to share our HR expertise by putting together workforce readiness training and other services for the clients supported by Mountain Home Montana and a discrimination training for Missoula Works.

If you are interested in volunteering to teach an HR related workshop, provide mentoring for program participants entering the workforce, or to sit on a panel to provide information, please contact David Owen, Workforce Development/Diversity Director  to volunteer or click the Volunteering Button to see upcoming opportunities.

How Big Sky SHRM Helped 2020

In lieu of just sending a check to our community partner for 2020 Big Sky SHRM opted to provide tangible items to the children of Missoula Youth Homes. Items that were provided to the children were gaming headphones, school planners, graphing calculators, water bottles, sketch books, and pencils. These items were delivered to Missoula Youth homes by our Big Sky SHRM President Alona Simonovich, and our Workforce Readiness/Diversity David Owen.
