First Tryon serves a diverse group of not-for-profit entities including private schools, charter schools, YMCAs, and others. These clients have missions and visions that make developing healthy balance sheets and debt service coverage ratios more challenging. Because it is not in the charter to charge significantly more than is required to build cash, major financings can be complicated. For private college and university clients, fundraising is the primary financing tool and it must be utilized effectively.

We have built comprehensive capital planning models for not-for-profits and private schools which help them better understand the financial impact of major projects including the operating impact of adding new staff to support the projected headcount increase from a capital project.
