Our Mission & Values

EFF’s experience and passion stand at the intersection of capital markets, charter schools and social impact.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make it easier, faster and less expensive for excellent charter schools to put down roots in sustainable facilities – ultimately allowing our partner schools to spend more time and money helping students achieve academic success and less on repaying loan costs.


Core Values


We approach our work – from financial analysis to school partnerships – with rigor and dedication. We take pride in the sophistication of our product and the depth of our credit analysis. We are unapologetic in the high bar we hold for ourselves and our schools.

Delivering Value – Period

We create value that empowers schools, students, and investors alike. We are steadfast in our delivery of results because each success brings us closer to the day when all students have access to a high-quality education in a suitable learning space.

Doing the Right Thing

We are professionals who act with integrity. We tell the truth, stand up for what is right, honor our commitments, and ensure alignment between our actions and our beliefs.

The Yin and the Yang

Our uniqueness comes from our duality. Our team consists of both charter school veterans and financial experts, and we take pride in this diversity of thought and expertise.
