The goal of the Ribbon of Hope grant program is to have a positive impact on the lives of North Carolina's citizens in each of the state's 100 counties. Two times per year the North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation (the Foundation) will award grants of $25,000 to North Carolina community-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations. These grants will support activities that establish or expand local programs in health, science, and education to serve identified community needs. In addition, grantees will benefit from technical assistance provided by the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits.

In order to be considered, proposals should relate to the establishment and implementation of projects tightly aligned with the goals and objectives of local community agencies and demonstrate their sustainability after grant funds are expended. Most importantly, proposals should address critical community needs that have been identified through comprehensive needs assessment activities. No grants are made for general operating, construction or restoration projects, or for the provision of medical services. The Foundation supports programs that emphasize the understanding and application of health, science, and education to meet the needs of North Carolina's citizens and communities.
