Using Debt to Unlock Financial Flexibility

In April, we hosted a webcast that addressed critical strategies in nonprofit debt management.

John Griffith, Endowment Specialist at Hirtle Callaghan, was joined by debt experts Eric Jordahl and Geoff Stenger from Kaufman Hall. They tackled key questions related to debt management, including:

– How can you gauge the optimal level of debt?

– What is the relationship between debt and the endowment?

– What is the lending environment today for nonprofit borrowers?

With interest rates as low as they are today, now is a good time to think about taking advantage of inexpensive financing. There is an opportunity to free up capital that can be invested in higher-returning assets, such as the endowment. We encourage trustees and staff of nonprofits to listen in and learn how debt can be used as a tool to maximize the value of their organization.
