Frequently asked questions

What is Village.com?

Village.com is a technology company working to close the 50% gap in access to extracurricular activities. Any business or nonprofit that offers extracurriculars can use our free software to add a "check for scholarships" button to their registration process, enabling families to get matched in real-time with scholarships from our national network of public and private donors.

Who is Village.com for?

Any business or organization that offers extracurricular activities to local families.
In addition to a wide range of small Providers spanning every niche, museums, zoos, nature reserves, STEAM programs, athletic clubs, private instructors, music schools, culinary schools, and art studios are all using Village.com to  offer financial assistance to families in their communities.

How much does Village.com cost?

Offering scholarships for your extracurricular activities with Village.com is, and always will be 100% free. The only cost activity Providers incur using Village.com is a 2.9% + 30 cent payment processing fee from our payments platform, Stripe.

We make money by offering activity Providers the option to add-on additional software features and/or advertise to our network of families, but this is completely optional.

Families do not pay any fees to Village.com.

How do scholarships work?

Village.com's scholarships technology makes your activities financial accessible to every family without you having to set up a 501(c)(3) non-profit, raise donations, or administer your own scholarship program.

When families visit your registration form created using Village.com, they see a "check for scholarships" button. Clicking this button begins a secure application to determine whether the family is eligible for a scholarship from our network of donors. The entire application takes less than 30-seconds to complete. If the family matches with a scholarship, they are instantly shown a discount on the original price of your activity. Scholarships range from 10 - 100% depending on the family's application and what funds are available. When a family decides to register for your activity, they pay the difference between the scholarship amount and the original price of your activity. Our technology instantly combines the family's payment with any scholarship funds they were awarded, and routes the money to your account. Scholarships are 100% confidential – for every registration you collect via Village.com, you see only the total amount collected (not "family paid vs. "donor paid").

I already have a registration software. Can I use Village.com to access scholarships without switching softwares?

You do not need to switch softwares to start using Village.com to offer scholarships for your activities.

We make it easy to export registrations into whatever tool you use currently to keep track of your customer's information. Curious about how your specific software integrates with Village.com? Send us an email at hello@village.com
