Chime Institute Charter Leases School Furniture and IT Equipment

Chime Institute, a California Public Charter School established in 2001 and based in Woodland Hills, California, recently leased


school furniture, laptops and IT equipment through TEQlease Education Finance, a division of TEQlease Capital. The IT and furniture will complete Chime Institute’s expansion into a new building to open in September 2015.

TEQlease Capital, a nationwide provider of equipment lease financing solutions, provided Chime Institute with a comprehensive, customized lease financing solution. “We are delighted with the equipment lease financing commitment we have obtained from TEQlease. The process was simple and easy and the equipment is starting to deliver now.” said Dr. Erin Studer, Executive Director at Chime Institute.

“We worked with Bruce Fornatoro throughout the process.  We had a chance lunch meeting with Bruce at the California Charter Schools Conference and the end result was to implement an equipment lease financing structure ideal for our needs.” The lease covered school furniture for the new building and science lab, laptops, installation & maintenance services provided by the IT vendor.
