Investment Banking


Is your private school planning a major new construction project? Perhaps your institution would like to purchase land for expansion or refinance an existing loan.

Since 1913, our company has been providing cost-effective financing to both faith-based and secular private schools nationwide. Since 2000 Ziegler has financed over 130 K-12 schools for more than $3.0 billion (charter, religious and private). 

Consult with Ziegler to understand the options available to your institution whether it is a private secular K-12, faith-based school or charter school. In the past decade, court decisions have opened the door for private schools to issue tax-exempt bonds to fund new construction projects. Tax-exempt financing can provide the lowest cost of capital available in the marketplace.

We have a number of different variations of tax-exempt financing that we can underwrite for your institution including letter of credit floating rate bonds and long-term fixed rate bonds. Our knowledge is not limited to specific financial solutions that we offer.

Ziegler's team of experienced bankers can help you with all aspects of your project.

One of the first questions private school leadership should ask when considering a major project is, “How much debt can my school afford?” Please contact us to Determine your Debt Capacity.
