Families: Donations

Parents can now donate to their school during checking. Below, you will find a detailed process of how donations work and where they go. We hope you are as excited about this new feature as we are!

After you have gone through the process of signing up family member(s) for their course at checkout you will have the option to donate*. The donations go towards the school and the programming. Some schools may decide not to offer donations, in this case, it will not be an option at checkout. 

The steps for completion:

  1. Select classes to enroll your family in
  2. Add to cart
  3. Complete payment and add donation - You can choose from $5, $10, $25 options or add a custom amount.

  4.  Receive email confirmation -  You will be able to see a donation line on your detailed receipt

Where does my money go: 

  • Money to the schools: the school you belong to will be charged a 3% transaction fee - if you would like to pay that forward, you will have the option to increase your donation to cover the 3%.
  • If you are signing up for one season - the money donated will go to that specific season. 
  • If you are signing up for multiple seasons - the money donated will go to the most recent season.

What if I need to cancel after donating? We understand that cancellations are oftentimes necessary. Do not worry, either Homeroom or your specific organizer will be able to cancel and refund you. This will not affect your donation. 

Please note: Prior to processing, you will be able to see a breakdown of fees. At this time you can always make corrections, or reach out to hello@homeroom.com for further questions. We are happy to help! 

*Only families checking out using stripe, will have the option to donate. If you use Affirm to pay, this will not be an option.
