The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) plays a critical role in the social impact community by educating, engaging, and connecting resource providers (funders, investors, and volunteers) and on-the-ground leaders of nonprofit organizations and social impact businesses. Each year, the Social Innovation Forum (SIF) selects a cohort of Social Innovators through a six-month evaluation process that brings together a range of stakeholders, including funders, practitioners, and leaders from business and academia. Once selected, Social Innovators receive 24 months of focused support from SIF and its partners, including consulting, executive coaching, and presentation advising.
These 33 Massachusetts-based nonprofits are working across a range of social issue areas – from environmental justice, to supporting immigrant families, to ensuring success for young people with disabilities. They represent some of the most important and innovative social impact work taking place in our region.
