We comprehensively guide clients through the complex world of cultural and social service non-profits. Whether you need funding for a new facility, or a better way to refinance debt, our experts can help.

Our Capabilities

Revenue Bonds

Revenue bonds are a valuable tool for financing your organization’s facilities. We guide nonprofits of various sizes through the revenue bond process from start to finish. We will help you assess debt capacity, navigate the issuer approval process, structure the issue and complete your sale at the most favorable interest rates.

Capital planning and structuring

When you’re ready to start the capital planning process, we will deliver the best structure for your goals. We help clients identify the right projects for tax-exempt financing and calculate the impact on their budget. Our debt structuring experience also includes fixed and variable rate, long- and short-term, tax-exempt and taxable, interest rate hedges and swaps.

Credit enhancement process

We have significant experience assisting nonprofits of all sizes with soliciting and negotiating competitive credit enhancement. Our knowledge of the major credit enhancement providers and understanding of their underwriting criteria allows us to provide exceptional client service in this area. In addition, we present fund-raising programs to banks and bond insurers that maximize your tax-exempt financing.

Bond rating process

Our team understands that a higher bond rating lowers your bond interest costs. We know the rating process inside and out and work closely with the analysts who review your issue to offer the best guidance through this important part of the bond issue process.

Debt refinancing

As far as interest rate conditions allow, we actively monitor our clients’ outstanding debt for money-saving opportunities. Additionally, we leverage the information in our nonprofit debt database to analyze a wide range of refinancing techniques and find the best fit for your organization. We move quickly to lock in savings and combine refinancing options with your bond issues to meet your debt objectives.
