LOS ALAMOS – Enterprise Bank & Trust recently presented the Los Alamos Community Foundation with a second $50,000 check to benefit the Foundation’s Enterprise Endowment Fund matching gift campaign.
In 2019, Enterprise pledged to contribute up to $50,000 per year for three years to create an endowment to benefit nonprofits in Los Alamos. This pledge is a matching challenge, which matches dollar-for-dollar public contributions that are made to the endowment. The Los Alamos Community Foundation raised $100,000 in 24 months from community members, successfully meeting the matching campaign goal for a total Enterprise Bank & Trust Endowment currently valued at $200,000.
The Foundation uses earnings from the endowment to make grants to nonprofits in Los Alamos County. This spring, grants were awarded to nonprofits to support projects that improve their organization’s long-term financial health.
“We are grateful to everyone in the community who has helped us meet this challenge,” said David Izraelevitz, President of the Los Alamos Community Foundation. “We look forward to making grants to nonprofits in Los Alamos through this endowment for years to come.”
As part of the 2019 commitment, Enterprise made a collective investment of nearly half a million dollars to seven New Mexico nonprofit organizations through the Enterprise Bank & Trust Foundation. This commitment provides resources directly to the Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque communities over three years. The contributions fund new or expanded facilities, enhanced programming and access to additional resources for their New Mexico markets.
“We are proud of our partnership with Los Alamos Community Foundation and happy to support them financially, support that will ultimately fund our regional nonprofit partners whose programming is critical to our communities,” said Liddie Martinez, Enterprise President – Los Alamos Region. “Enterprise is a dedicated community partner, and we are delivering on our promise to strengthen the well-being of our regional communities,” Martinez added.
