GlaxoSmithKline’s 22nd annual IMPACT Awards cycle is open and offering 10 Philly nonprofits $40,000 each.

Administered by The Philadelphia Foundation, the awards go to organizations addressing their community’s health needs — specifically, programs that “help our neighbors access healthy foods and stay active, find high-quality jobs and education, and strengthen their family and social supports — because we know that these things are fundamental to a healthy community,” said Becki Lynch, acting director of community partnerships, GSK, in a release.

The international pharmaceutical company honors nonprofits in both Philadelphia’s five-county region and in Durham, North Carolina. See last year’s winners here.

Eligible nonprofits must focus programming on at least one of the following:

  • Nutrition and physical activity
  • Education
  • Housing and built environment
  • Employment and income
  • Community safety
  • Family and social support

Nonprofits must register to apply for the 2018 award by March 30 and completed apps are due by May 4. Winners will be announced in September.

P.S. The Philadelphia Foundation has a few other grant opportunities available: The East Mount Airy Neighbors Community Fund is looking to grant out between $5,000 and $50,000 to nonprofits serving Northwest Philadelphia, and the Edna W. Andrade Fund has $75,000 to divide between six museums or arts nonprofits “with exhibitions or programs that benefit visual fine artists of Greater Philadelphia.”

Apps are due by, respectively, April 6 and April 15.
