Question: How can government, corporations, small businesses, and non-profit agencies better support each others’ work in their respective sectors while partnering together to create positive social change?
Answer: Come find out at a Panel Presentation highlighting the City Garden Facility Deal!
When City Garden, a small, neighborhood charter school in St. Louis with few financial resources, was seeking to resolve its facility challenges, numerous partners came together to craft a deal that includes New Market Tax Credits, state and federal historic tax credits, bank financing, private contributions, and nonprofit loan.
Collaboration and creativity made it possible for a small, grassroots school to move into a newly-renovated, state of the art LEED facility.
Now, City Garden’s success, and its move to the Botanical Heights Neighborhood are profoundly impacting neighborhood stabilization and education reform efforts in St. Louis.
Panelists from Participating Organizations will discuss:
Where: City Garden Montessori’s new state-of-the-art, LEED facility located at 1618 Tower Grove Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63110. Tours of the school will be available.
When: January 30, 2014 – 5:30 pm
