Schools, Municipalities, and Nonprofits

BGE's Installation Financing is designed to financially assist schools, universities, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations with the cost of audio installation projects. BGE's program reduces the upfront capital needed for the project and eases the annual budget with extended terms.

Step-by-Step Procedures

  1. Schools, municipalities and Nonprofits discuss needs with local Yamaha Professional Audio dealer.
  2. The dealer will prepare a lease proposal for the school, municipality or nonprofit stating the exact cost of a 2-, 3-, 4- or 5-year lease plan.
  3. A formal lease will be prepared and sent to the school, municipality or nonprofit for authorized signatures.
  4. Upon receipt of signed lease documents, the dealer will be notified to order product and begin the installation process.
  5. The school, municipality or nonprofit will then sign the acceptance certificate and return it along with the first annual or monthly payment.
  6. The subsequent payments will be due on the anniversary date of the lease.
  7. After the lease has been paid in full, the school, municipality or nonprofit may purchase the sound equipment on the lease for $1.00.
