Academy Fund Loans Reach $10M!

Last year, we launched the Academy Fund – an experienced team that provides due diligence, diversification and access to some of the best real estate professionals and their deals so you can earn a safe, reliable income from real estate while investing in fellow veterans who share the common traits of intelligence, integrity, and grit. Today, we’re celebrating a year in review!

So far, the Academy Fund financed 121,887 building square feet through 26 loans totaling $10,123,647! To all those who made it happen, THANK YOU!

As lending increases, the Academy Fund reflects on a growing trend in real estate development occurring in the Southeastern United States. We have financed deals in Texas, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina in a variety of asset classes including single-family homes, duplex units, commercial retail spaces, and raw land for new builds and fix and flips.

That’s not all.

In the summer of 2021, the Academy Fund loaned $2.4M to Marine Corps veteran real estate operator Buddy Rushing and his team of investors. The result? Buddy acquired twenty-two cash-flowing, single-family rental properties in Florida and shared the wealth with other military veterans and family members in the process:

"The whole point of the Academy Fund is to help people do great things in real estate. One of the things you desperately need in real estate is access to capital. We did a multi-million dollar deal recently, which the Academy Fund made possible and I don’t think we could have done it without them. It was an easy process from the borrower’s side. It’s a massive family effort and that is way cooler than any return on investment!" -Buddy Rushing (USNA ‘04)

We’ll discuss everything from how to supercharge your savings through self-directed IRAs and HELOC arbitrage (which involves borrowing at a low rate and earning at a higher rate!) to why it’s important to have fixed income allocated to your portfolio (think diversification from equities, capital preservation, and income and inflation protection).

Why real estate?

People always need a place to live and work. The Academy Fund’s incredible success over the last year proves there has never been a better time to invest in real estate.

So, go for it!

Invest with purpose. Choose the Academy Fund. Join our family. Be our next success story! Let’s make it happen! We look forward to hearing from you.
