Our Initiatives


Since 1997

  • $382 million in loans, tax credit allocations, guarantees and grants invested
  • This financing helps support 88,064 charter school seats
  • On average, LISC-financed charter schools had test scores that out-paced those of other schools in their respective districts by 20%.

Since 2003, LISC's Charter School Financing has been supported by the Walton Family Foundation. We are also generously supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, JPMorgan Chase and the U.S. Department of Education.
