In the Community
At GlaxoSmithKline Inc., we're committed to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer. With a proud tradition of charitable and community support, being a socially responsible company is one of the company's key priorities. Our charitable and community programs support projects that are innovative, sustainable and results-oriented.
A partnership between the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, hospice palliative care organizations across the country and The GlaxoSmithKline Foundation, Living Lessons® helps raise awareness of and support for hospice palliative care services to help enhance the quality of end-of-life care.
A Caring Company
GlaxoSmithKline is designated a Caring Company by Imagine Canada, a national organization that supports Canada's charities, nonprofit organizations and community-minded businesses. As a Caring Company, GlaxoSmithKline annually donates a minimum of one per cent of pre-tax profits through The GlaxoSmithKline Foundation and other channels.
Helping to Enhance the Quality of Life
In 1997, GlaxoSmithKline employees chose hospice palliative care as the company's “cause of choice,” and GlaxoSmithKline and The Foundation direct substantial energy and resources toward this cause.
