Healthy communities

Health doesn’t just happen inside the doctor’s office, which is why we invest in local nonprofits making our communities healthier.

Honoring outstanding nonprofit organizations that are working every day to make our communities healthier.

For more than 20 years, GSK has awarded organizations that are working every day to address critical community health challenges in and around our US campuses in Durham, NC and Philadelphia, PA with GSK IMPACT Awards. 

Recent IMPACT Award winners have been recognized for innovative and transformational programs that make our communities healthier. These local nonprofit organizations are improving education, keeping kids active, making homes and neighborhoods safer, connecting families to support services, and preparing people of all ages for successful careers – all important factors to improve health outcomes in underserved neighborhoods.

To date, exemplary US-based nonprofits have been honored with over $11 million in GSK IMPACT Awards.
