High-quality schools are integral to helping students succeed and building strong communities. Reinvestment Fund is committed to supporting schools that create equitable learning environments for all students.
Innovative Financing Solutions for Schools
Reinvestment Fund draws upon over two decades of experience providing innovative facility financing solutions for K-12 schools. As a lender and partner, we provide technical assistance and capital to operators in all stages of organizational development. We structure financing to minimize ongoing facilities costs and close the gaps that may stand in the way of a successful project.
We work with start-up and early stage schools with limited liquidity, experienced operators expanding to new geographies, and mature programs seeking affordable financing for a permanent home.
Loan Types for Schools
- Leasehold Improvement
- New Markets Tax Credits & Leverage Loans
- Energy Efficiency
- Bridge Loans
Reinvestment Fund has a track record of supporting charter schools with their facilities financing. Charter operators face significant facilities challenges. Credit enhancement awarded to Reinvestment Fund by the U.S. Department of Education enables us to provide more flexible financing to ensure charter schools can open and operate in buildings that best serve their program’s needs. Credit enhancement allows us to provide loan-to-value limits up to 100%, leasehold or second position collateral, longer interest-only periods, and predevelopment loans.
