Social Issue Track *

For the 2018 program year, we will select one nonprofit Social Innovator for each of the eight 2017-2018 "social issue tracks." Please select the track below which you believe most closely aligns to the organization you are nominating.

It is possible to apply on more than one track if your organization fits both track descriptions. If you believe this is the case, please contact us at or 617.492.2305.

Please note: The "Anything Goes" track is ONLY open to organizations that do not fit on any of the other seven social issue tracks.
This year in addition to selecting one Innovator for the “Promoting Successful Advancement and Integration for Immigrants, Refugees, and Asylum-Seekers” track, the Social Innovation Forum will invite 6-8 nonprofit organizations from the applicant pool to participate in the Capacity Camp, a condensed version of the Accelerator, which will take place between February and April 2018. Participation in this program will not disqualify any nonprofit from applying to the SIF Accelerator in the future. Please see the “About the Capacity Camp” section in the Application Guide for more information.
