GlaxoSmithKline offering grants to Triangle nonprofits

From staff reportsMay 8, 2013 

— Nonprofits that work to improve people’s health can apply for one of 10 $40,000 grants being offered by GlaxoSmithKline and the Triangle Community Foundation.

The GSK IMPACT Awards aim to honor and bolster programs that help people live healthier lives. They are available to nonprofits that are in Chatham, Durham, Granville, Person, Orange or Wake counties and have operating budgets of between $160,000 and $5 million.

In years past, GSK has offered grants to nonprofits that work to improve access to health care around its two U.S. corporate campuses in Durham and Philadelphia. This year, the scope of the award had been expanded to include programs that promote good health. Since 2009, the company has given more than $1 million to 28 local nonprofits in the Triangle.

Applications for the IMPACT awards are due May 31. For information or to apply, go to
