Date:10/25/2011

DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GlaxoSmithKline, one of the world's leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, today announced the 10 winners of its GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards. In total, the North Carolina and Philadelphia-area healthcare nonprofit organizations will receive $400,000 in grant funding for providing access to healthcare for the underserved in their communities.

Three of the North Carolina recipients listed below are based in counties that became eligible for a GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Award for the first time in 2011 -- Alamance, Lee and Moore.

"All of the GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Award winners are leaders in the nonprofit world and in their communities," said Mary Linda Andrews, GlaxoSmithKline Director of Community Partnerships. "The dedicated teams of professionals and volunteers at these organizations are working on the front lines to provide access to healthcare at a time when people need it most. These awards provide additional resources to help them continue their important work."

Grants were awarded to the following organizations:

The Healing Place of Wake County - Raleigh, N.C., Wake County

Helping Hand Clinic Inc. - Sanford, N.C., Lee County

Housing for New Hope, Inc. - Durham, N.C., Durham County

Legal Clinic for the Disabled, Inc. - Philadelphia, Pa.

Support Center for Child Advocates - Philadelphia, Pa.

In North Carolina, GlaxoSmithKline works in partnership with Durham-based Triangle Community Foundation (TCF), a nonprofit that connects resources with needs through community-based philanthropy. TCF and GlaxoSmithKline identified potential nonprofit applicants, encouraged their participation and promoted the awards through grassroots outreach.

"It is essential that nonprofit organizations have the resources they need to address ever-increasing demands for their services, especially in the world of healthcare," said Lori O'Keefe, TCF Vice President for Philanthropic Services and COO. "Our partnership with GlaxoSmithKline highlights the dedication of these nonprofits and will encourage others to participate in the future as we strive toward excellence in healthcare access."

The GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards (whose name represents Innovation, Management, Partnership, Achievement, Community focus and Targeting needs of diverse and underserved populations) honor nonprofit organizations that have a significant impact on their communities and are capable, proactive and effective in their work. This year's winners will receive their GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT Awards at separate ceremonies held at GlaxoSmithKline's headquarters in Research Triangle Park, N.C. and in Philadelphia.

To qualify for a GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT award, organizations must be located in the eligible counties and have a primary mission to provide access to community healthcare services. Each applicant must have annual total operating expenses between $160,000 and $3 million, and have been in existence as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for at least five years.

All organizations are recognized for the success and achievements of their existing overall body of work, not just for new or specific initiatives. A panel of healthcare delivery experts and GlaxoSmithKline representatives 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, creative partnerships and policy development, and a solid record of achievement, management and leadership.
