About Robert W. Baird & Co.
As the #1 underwriter/provider of charter school bond financings in the country since 2009 (Source: Thomson Reuters), we know how difficult it can be for charter schools to finance and own permanent facilities. Baird’s national Charter School Facilities Financing team has assisted charter schools/CMO’s on 150 charter school financings, obtaining $2.8 billion in funding for construction, land purchase, renovations, refinancings, and other capital projects. These financings have been accomplished utilizing bond issues, New Markets Tax Credits, and other financing sources. Baird celebrates charter school successes in this environment, enabling continuation and expansion for important work in educating our future generations.
