Everyone at REDF was elated to receive news of a renewal of our Social Innovation Fund (SIF) grant. Given the anemic economy, and huge federal and state budget reductions, we know what an affirmation this is – of REDF, and of the extraordinary nonprofits we work with, the social enterprises they run, and the people who are going to work as a result.
Both public resources and jobs are more scarce and precious than ever. We plan to do all we can with our partners to seize this tremendous opportunity and accelerate the work of job creation and the life changes and hope those jobs represent. We hope you will join us.
We also want to congratulate the other SIF grantees – those that received renewals, and the new organizations funded.
