GlaxoSmithKline 13th Annual IMPACT Awards Seek Nonprofits Providing Access to Healthcare

Greater Philadelphia Region Healthcare Nonprofits to Receive Up to $400,000 in Funding - Application Deadline July 15, 2009

PHILADELPHIA, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards target community-based nonprofits that provide access to healthcare for the underserved. Up to ten organizations in Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lehigh, Montgomery, or Philadelphia Counties will be awarded $40,000 each. The awards are bestowed upon winning organizations for success and achievements in their current, overall work, not just for new or specific initiatives. Applications will be accepted through July 15, 2009, 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Annually, the GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards target nonprofit organizations that have a significant impact on their communities and are capable, proactive and effective in their work. GlaxoSmithKline's IMPACT Awards stand for and support Innovation, Management, Partnership, Achievement, Community focus and Targeting needs within community-based healthcare organizations. Organizations that exemplify the IMPACT Awards criteria continue to provide quality, accessible healthcare to their constituent communities despite their financial and resource limitations. Winners in previous years include organizations that provide medical and dental care for the underserved, access to care for cancer patients and the chronically ill, services for children with genetic disorders and comprehensive treatment for women with addiction.

To qualify for a GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT award, applicants must provide access to healthcare services (primary mission); have a total annual operating expense of less than $2.5 million; and have been in existence as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for at least five years. A panel of local and national healthcare delivery experts and GlaxoSmithKline representatives will determine the winners based on a strong demonstration of ongoing success in providing access to healthcare; commitment to serving people in need; facilitation of healthcare delivery, substantive partnerships; policy development; and a solid record of achievement, management and leadership.

The GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards will be presented at an awards ceremony in Philadelphia in early 2010.
