The awards are open to charities with an annual income of between £25,000 and £2 million that are at least three years old. The name ‘IMPACT’ derives from the criteria that winners must have demonstrated in their application submissions: Innovation, Management, Partnership, Achievement, Community focus and Targeting need.
There will be ten GSK IMPACT Award winners who each receive £30,000, and ten runner-up organisations who each receive £3,000. The overall winner will be awarded an additional £10,000 in unrestricted funding.
GSK – one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical and health care companies – is committed to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer.
