How We Got Here

CAM was founded by two friends passionate about education, and with expertise in finance. They believed charter schools could improve
our education system, but they knew those schools needed access to capital in order to succeed.

In 2013, CAM funded our first school in East Los Angeles. We’ve since funded over one billion dollars to charter schools nationwide. We’ve helped hundreds of charter schools to succeed, and start new initiatives like dual language immersion and STEM programs.

Today, CAM is one of the leading providers of financing to charter schools in the United States. We’re a proud part of the charter school
movement, a vital part of the American educational system. We’ve always been committed to helping
charter schools achieve their goals.

Making a Difference

How We Supported Arts in Action

Arts in Action is a charter school with a focus on arts and entrepreneurship. They believed having skills in these areas helps
students to develop self-confidence, problem-solving abilities, and creativity.

CAM provided funding to Arts in Action in 2015, which empowered them to expand their campus and hire more teachers. As a result, they were able to admit more students and offer additional programs. We’re proud to see that our funding made a real difference in the lives of their students.
