GlaxoSmithKline 15th Annual IMPACT Awards Seek Philadelphia Area and Camden Healthcare Nonprofits

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The GlaxoSmithKline 15th Annual IMPACT Awards target community-based nonprofits that provide access to healthcare for the underserved. Up to ten organizations in the Pennsylvania Counties of Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lehigh, Montgomery, and Philadelphia and in the City of Camden, New Jersey, 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 March 31, 2011, 4:00 p.m. EDT.

Every year the GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards recognize, highlight and reward nonprofit organizations that have a significant impact on their communities and are accomplished, proactive and effective in their work. GlaxoSmithKline's IMPACT Awards represent and support Innovation, Management, Partnership, Achievement, Community focus and Targeting needs within community-based healthcare organizations. Nonprofits that exemplify the IMPACT Awards criteria continue to provide quality, accessible healthcare to their communities despite financial and resource limitations. Winners in previous years include organizations that provide medical and dental care for the underserved, health services for cancer patients, access to healthcare for the chronically ill, and pediatric therapy for those with special needs.

To qualify for a GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT award, applicants must provide access to healthcare services (primary mission and resource allocation); have annual total operating expenses between $160,000 and $3 million, as documented in the organization's most recent fiscal year financial statement; and have been in existence as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for at least five years as of 2011. 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 a ceremony in Philadelphia in late 2011.
