PORTLAND, Ore., April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter School Capital, the largest national services provider exclusively focused on charter schools and the students they serve, has launched the free COVID-19 Relief Financing program, effective immediately. The program provides eligible charter schools with no financing charges and no-fee financing through 2020.
"The most valuable things we have to offer are immediate access to funds, a financial safety net, and our passionate support," said Stuart Ellis, president and CEO of Charter School Capital. "The best way to support charter schools during the pandemic is to provide them with the use of our money and resources, for free."
Free COVID-19 Relief Financing is available to all qualifying charter schools actively serving 150 or more students. Charter schools facing immediate cash needs will be able to access funds within as few as five days of completing the application process, and funds can be used as charter school leaders deem appropriate.
