The North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation is committed to embracing the entire state through our various grant programs. We seek the creative spark that makes a true difference in people's lives by supporting innovative programs promoting the sciences, health and education. Traditional grants, which are over $25,000, are often multi-year commitments that have a broad impact in the state. The Ribbon of Hope program provides one-time $25,000 grants to nonprofits to establish or expand local programs in the areas of science, health and education. Read more about us in our annual report 2016 Annual Report.
