Case: University of Neverland to complete the following assignment.
The university has traditionally utilized bonds for funding any of its facility projects. Because the university is a non¬profit organization, it cannot issue stock as a traditional corporation can. But the university's president wants to explore all possible funding options, so she wants you to examine the existing information and determine if nonprofits can sell shares in anything to raise money. For example, some lighthouses have sold shares in the lighthouse and have given a beautiful lithographed print to the purchaser as a memento. Likewise, the Green Bay Packers and Boise State have made stock offer¬ings.
Please write a thorough response to the university's president (in the form of a well-organized report) regarding funding for facilities. Your well-organized, articulate report should contain the following items:(5 pts each)
1. The strengths and weaknesses of funding facilities with bonds
2. The strengths and weaknesses of funding with stocks or other forms of private ownership
3. Examples and explanations of other non-profits who have utilized stocks for funding and how successful they have been.
4. Your analysis of the feasibility of bond funding for UNL and how much money you think could be generated through various types of bonds (be sure to consider both general obligation, AND revenue bonds). Your analysis should also explore the various sources of revenue that could be utilized to pay back bonds for college facilities.
