GlaxoSmithKline just awarded 10 Philly nonprofits $40K each

Youth sports, safety, housing and community health were the areas of interest this year for the healthcare company.

The holiday season arrived a tad bit early for 10 Philadelphia-based nonprofits this year.

But instead of cherry-nosed Santa Claus tumbling down the chimney prematurely, it’s U.K.-based pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) bearing a bag full of award money.

Just in the (St.) Nick of time. Sorry.

It’s the annual Impact Awards, a 20-year tradition wherein GSK recognizes 10 nonprofits working across youth development, public safety, housing and community health. Here are this year’s awardees, each of which have been gifted a plump $40,000 check:

Here’s another cool thing: GSK employees will also vote for one of the lucky nonprofits above to land an extra $10,000, a trip to GSK’s awards gala in London and a three-day skills-building workshop — all to celebrate two decades of local corporate giving.

And here’s a little present for you: a sweet Flickr slideshow full of great photos of the awardees.
