Small foundations are often creative catalysts in the philanthropic sector.  They frequently are the first to identify, support, and strengthen those non-profits doing the most innovative and challenging work.  Small foundations also have the flexibility to build deep relationships within their communities, respond quickly as emergency needs arise, and partner with a variety of other groups to leverage the impact of their own support.
