Here’s some posi funding news for your Thursday.

For the 21st year, 10 Philly nonprofits are receiving $40,000 each from pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline’s (GKS) IMPACT Awards for their work in addressing their community’s health needs.

This year’s organizations work in community safety, education, legal access and food access:

  • Coatesville Youth Initiative 
  • Food Moxie
  • Good Samaritan Shelter, Inc.
  • Greensgrow
  • New Leash on Life USA 
  • Philadelphia Outward Bound School 
  • SeniorLAW Center 
  • Southeastern Asian Mutual Assistance Associations Coalition (SEAMAAC) 
  • Starfinder Foundation 
  • Students Run Philly Style 

GSK awards nonprofits in both Philadelphia and Durham, North Carolina. In the past 21 years, 241 nonprofits in both regions have received over $10 million collectively. IMPACT stands for innovative, measured, partnered, accountable, community-centered and transformative — the six traits it requires winning nonprofits to emulate.

And because they’re all gorgeous, here’s a slideshow of winners’ photos.
