Calling exceptional nonprofits!

We’re committed to improving the health and wellbeing of communities worldwide. In fact, in 2013, our global community investment totaled $347 million.  And right now in the US, we are calling on local nonprofits throughout the Greater Philadelphia and Research Triangle (NC) Regions to apply for this year’s GSK IMPACT Awards. This is an annual awards program through which we honor exceptional local nonprofits that are transforming the communities where many of our employees live and work. 

We want to honor the best of the best, so applicants must be able to demonstrate how they are making an impact in their communities. A panel of expert judges will select up to twenty winning organizations, and each  will receive a GSK IMPACT Award and $40,000. The awards are our chance to say thank you, what you are doing is important, and please keep up the good work.

On top of that, for the second year we are coordinating the Employee Choice Award. GSK employees will have the chance to vote on which winning organization they think is the most compelling in contributing to a healthier community. The organizations with the most votes in NC and PA will earn the Employee Choice Award and an additional $10,000.

Please help spread the word to local nonprofits with programs serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and/or Philadelphia Counties in PA, and Chatham, Durham, Orange and/or Wake Counties in NC.

The application deadline is Friday, June 6 at 4pm ET, and interested applicants are invited to participate in a conference call on Thursday, May 22. To review eligibility criteria, register for the conference call, and apply for the GSK IMPACT Award, visit www.gskimpact-us.com.
