The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) is pleased to announce the 20 finalists for the 2024 Social Innovator Accelerator. These organizations and programs represent some of the nonprofit sector's most promising approaches to addressing the toughest social issues of Eastern Massachusetts.
For our signature Accelerator program, we received 70 applications across six social issue tracks. We are grateful to our evaluation committee members, a group of 32 social issue experts who gathered on Zoom and in person to evaluate applications and narrow down the finalists. The 20 finalists recently completed site visits and will undergo final due diligence before eight Social Innovators are selected in early December.
