The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) is pleased to announce the 26 finalists for the 2022 Social Innovator Accelerator. These organizations and programs represent some of the nonprofit sector's most promising approaches to addressing Greater Boston's toughest social issues. 

For our signature accelerator program, we received 110 applications across eight social issue tracks. We are grateful to our evaluation committee members, a group of 77 social issue experts, funders, and practitioners who gathered on Zoom to evaluate applications and narrow down the finalists. The finalist programs and organizations recently completed informational site visits and will undergo final due diligence before eight Social Innovators are selected in early December.
