Community Catalyst Fund Building Exterior

All too often, our communities fall short on providing safe, affordable housing and positive environments. This is particularly true in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods with high percentages of working families and people of color. Compounding this challenge: These neighborhoods typically don’t offer easy access to food and retail services, transportation, jobs, education, and recreational opportunities.

As a result, many residents face continued financial instability and a lower quality of life, which can have a negative cascading effect on their well-being—and in turn, the well-being of our communities overall.

That’s why three like-minded organizations have joined together to create the Community Catalyst Fund, with an initial investment of $10 million and a long-term vision for elevating community wellness.

Creating better neighborhoods, improving financial stability

The Community Catalyst Fund was founded by three like-minded, local partners: Anchorum St. Vincent, a nonprofit based in Santa Fe; Enterprise Bank & Trust, with locations in the Southwest and Midwest; and Homewise, a New Mexico nonprofit housing organization.

Our goal is to help create a wide variety of mixed-use developments, affordable housing, and new commercial and community spaces to enhance the quality of life for underserved neighborhoods in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and other communities in northern and central New Mexico. The Community Catalyst Fund will also enable the acquisition, rehabilitation, and redevelopment of residential and commercial properties; and assist current and prospective homeowners with down payments, mortgage payments, and home maintenance, and help to improve residents’ financial literacy.
