How can I make debt work for my organization?

When a non-profit, charity or social enterprise has an opportunity to buy an asset (such as a building or a new piece of equipment) that would significantly enhance the organizations ability to deliver its mandate or do its business, debt can be the answer.

Although each case is unique, the costs of borrowing versus the anticipated benefits can really make borrowing attractive. Take buying a property for example. If the mortgage payments are only slightly higher than the current rent and if the mortgage can be paid off quickly, the organization can use the mortgage to acquire a long term asset and reduce occupancy costs over the long run.
