The Center For Institutional Financing Testimonials
The Center For Institutional Finance helped us transform our Christian Academy into one of the largest and most successful schools in Florida in nearly miraculous fashion. At every step in our journey, CFIF was by our side, working for our financial and operating success and performing as our dedicated partner. They helped us achieve our miracle and continue to help us grow and flourish.
When we first met the people from The Center For Institutional Finance at a Bishop’s leadership conference in New Orleans, they promised they would do everything possible to help us achieve our vision of a new college campus to replace the much too small, overcrowded church building that was our church home. The new college campus was magnificent in every regard, with 16 acres of centrally located land and an impressive building as the focal point of the campus We highly recommend The Center For Institutional Finance and enjoyed working with Chuck Devers, President. They were consistently available for us and we believe they will serve each of their clients the same as they served us. They have been a true blessing
