WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 18, 2021) – Building Hope, a non-profit foundation dedicated to identifying and financing viable facilities so that all students have access to a quality K-12 education, today announced its Building Hope Services President Richard Moreno and Director Curtis Fuller will each present at the National Charter Schools Conference, which will occur virtually June 21-23. Building Hope is a Sustaining Sponsor of the 2021 National Charter SchoolConference that will bring together charter school professionals to engage, educate, and innovate around an Education (R)evolution conference theme.
Having a dedicated facility is a crucial step in every charter school’s journey. In a session titled, “The Many Options of Charter School Facility Financing,” Moreno will provide an overview of the financial process to make that step a reality, including the most common financing vehicles used by charters. He will also lead a forum for attendees to ask questions and discuss the pros and cons of various financing options that can help a charter school secure a permanent facility.
The journey to start a new charter school is full of ups and downs, highlights and challenges. In a session titled, “From Dreams to Reality – Opening a New Charter,” Fuller will host a conversation for attendees to share the highlights and challenges they have faced throughout their own experiences. This conversation is sponsored by the Charter Support Unit, a grant-sponsored service for new charter schools throughout the country, that also hosts webinars, provides free documents and resources, and provides various location-based services to assist charter schools.
