(formerly known as the SCI Social Capitalist Luncheon)

For 15 years, SCI’s annual luncheon has honored individuals who exemplify our mission. The SCI Idealist Award is presented to leaders who dedicate their lives and engage their social capital to address some of the most pressing needs in our communities.

Traditionally held at a hotel in Downtown Boston as a single event with some 250 business and community leaders, we have adapted the 2022 event, formally known as the SCI Luncheon! This year’s celebration will include two events.

Sponsorship opportunities for this event include tickets & advertisement opportunities! To learn more about sponsorship, reach out to Leah Mulrenan at LMulrenan@socialcapitalinc.org.
