ABOUT US

Our mission is to find and back the best social innovations in Ireland, and to enable them to scale and maximise their impact. Our vision is the world’s best ecosystem for supporting social innovations – right here in Ireland. SIFI was catalysed by the Irish Government to stimulate philanthropy and support the growth of Ireland’s best social innovations. To do this, the Government has set up a challenge fund – for every Euro, we raise in philanthropy it is matched by a Euro from Department of Rural and Community Development, through the Dormant Accounts Funds. Social Innovation Fund Ireland practices active philanthropy through providing growth capital in the form of grants, as well as Accelerator programmes targeting growth. These can include growth planning, mentoring & other inputs tailored to the organisation’s needs.

WHAT HAVE WE DONE?

At 4 years old, SIFI has launched 14 Funds and supported 61 organisations to date. SIFI Awardees have the ambition to grow and make a step change in their impact. To support them, SIFI offers a powerful mix of grant funds and business supports through a 6-month Accelerator or a multi-year Gamechanger programme. SIFI has grown rapidly in the last 3 years. It has recently strengthened its Board through 2 new appointments and now looks to strengthen its team through recruiting several new roles, including Fund Manager, Social Impact Analyst, Social Impact Assistant, Marketing Coordinator, and 2 Administrative Assistant roles. Recruiting these roles will enable SIFI to lead the way and deepen the impact of our growing portfolio of awardees.

HOW WE WORK

There are four phases to the typical social impact work involved in our programmes:

1. Finding the best social innovations – Prepare and run the call for applications, run the selection process, prepare recommendations on who should be selected for the awards.

2. Investing in their social impact – A small number of awardees will receive a cash award plus a programme of non-financial supports that target growth. This role will manage the timing and targeting of the capacity building non-financial supports, to maximise the social impact by the Awardees, and will administer the financial supports.

3. Communicating the power of the programme – There are several opportunities during the programme to communicate externally about this awards programme.

4. Concluding the programme well – this requires capturing and communicating the social impact achieved by awardees during the programme, capturing lessons learned that can inform future programmes, and closing out relationships in a positive way.
