Charitable grants

At GSK, we are guided by our mission of helping people do more, feel better, and live longer. To achieve this mission, we must go beyond discovering, developing, and delivering new medicines, vaccines, and healthcare products. That’s why we are committed to supporting nonprofits in the communities where we live and work.

Our charitable partnerships in the US support programs for children and youth focused on nutrition and physical activity, STEM education, and disaster preparedness and response.

Organizations based in the US with a 501(c)(3) IRS designation that meet GSK's grant eligibility guidelines may complete and submit a request for a charitable grant at www.gskgrants.com.
