GSK is honoring 20 nonprofits for their outstanding contributions to improving health in
the Triangle (North Carolina) and Greater Philadelphia regions. The 20 IMPACT Award winners (10 per
region) are receiving $50,000 each to support their organizations’ missions to build capacity to improve
the health and welfare of individuals often underrepresented in their local communities.

To date, GSK has awarded over $14 million in unrestricted funding to local nonprofits across the two
regions that are home to its US corporate hubs. Unrestricted funding allows the nonprofits to use the
money for any purpose furthering their work.

Maya Martinez-Davis, President, US Pharmaceuticals, GSK said: “We’re pleased to provide funding to
nonprofit organizations that connect underserved communities with access to critical services like
community safety, education, employment, affordable housing, family/social support, nutrition and activity
programs. At GSK, we aim to improve health equity in the communities where we live and work through
programs like the IMPACT awards.”

The GSK IMPACT Awards will be given during a virtual ceremony at 11 am ET today.

Each year, the winners are selected by a panel of GSK and community leaders through a competitive
process. The winning nonprofits needed to demonstrate that they improve community health through
innovative ideas, measured outcomes, collaborative partnerships, accountability and racial equity.
