2021 Social Innovator

The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) is pleased to announce the 25 finalists for the 2021 Social Innovator Accelerator. These organizations and programs represent the nonprofit sector's most promising approaches to addressing some of Greater Boston's toughest social issues. 

For our signature accelerator program, we received 103 applications across six social issue tracks. We are grateful to our evaluation committee members -- a group of 68 social issue experts, funders, and practitioners -- who gathered on Zoom to evaluate applications and narrow down the finalists. These organizations will move on to interviews and further due diligence before six Social Innovators are selected in early December.
