Equity Schools

by MAPSA, on Sep 2, 2020 9:55:39 AM

Equity Schools is a public benefit corporation, creating custom finance solutions for school development projects including facility expansion, renovation, construction, and operations. Our specialty is identifying and securing sufficient funding for capital needs & long term financial sustainability.

We work closely with schools to create an actionable plan to get their project successfully financed, and we also offer to stay on board to ensure that the project gets completed. We intimately know schools and the unique funding challenges they face, and we bring decades of experience in successful school development to every project team.

Our most recent project, fully financed and currently under construction, is the Academy of Warren on East 8 Mile Road. At AOW we are increasing capacity and greatly enhancing the learning environments -- but with no fund raising, no new government funding, and no diversion of operating funds -- while actually reducing the school’s debt burden.  Read about this "An Academic and Athletic Showpiece.”
