At Equitable Facilities Fund (EFF), we’ve set out to transform the lending landscape by making it easier and less expensive for high-performing charter schools to access low-cost, long-term facility financing.** Today, we are pleased to announce the closing of a loan to Itineris Early College High School in West Jordan, Utah! To date, EFF has committed over $164 million to excellent schools across the country.**

Founded in 2004, Itineris serves a diverse population of 372 students in grades 10 to 12. The school prioritizes STEM education and post-secondary success by offering a curriculum that enables students to earn up to two years of college credit. Itineris graduates have outperformed state and national ACT composite averages every year since 2005-06, and the high school is consistently recognized as one of the best in Utah.  

About the EFF & Itineris Partnership
EFF’s team provided Itineris with a 30-year, fixed-rate loan to refinance bonds used to construct a new, permanent school facility. Our unwavering commitment to deliver value to schools will save Itineris an estimated $1.9 million over the life of the loan, re-directing valuable resources to the school's high-impact classrooms. 
We are proud to partner with schools across America, like Itineris, that are providing opportunities for students to access a high-quality education. EFF provides financing for a variety of project types to schools that have track records of academic and operational success.
