Help us help you save

We are on a mission on behalf of our members—a mission to add increasingly more valuable member benefits. Our goal is pretty straightforward. We want to make the value of our member benefits worth at least two times the cost of membership.

To that end, we are looking to identify great values, discounts, and business partners. Would you consider sharing your experiences?

If you know of a company that offers a discount to homeschoolers, let us know about them by emailing memberdiscounts@hslda.org with “Homeschool discount” in the subject line. You can help fellow homeschoolers stretch their dollars a little farther!

We are getting close to making HSLDA membership more than pay for itself—even for those who are on a pretty tight budget.

A few “unknown” benefits

We commonly hear, “I didn’t know HSLDA did that!” Here are a few member benefits you may not know about:

  • Our PerX program (www.hslda.org/perx) offers unique discounts to our members, and many PerX vendors give a small portion of your purchase back to HSLDA or HSF.
  • Do you frequently shop online? If so, your favorite store might be offering a percentage back to support the Home School Foundation. When you shop through the HSLDA Clicks for Homeschooling program, you could be making a donation at the same time as you make your purchase—and it costs you nothing. Go to www.hslda.org/clicks4hs.
  • Did you know that you can call or email and get your questions on homeschooling answered for free?! Of course, we answer legal questions, but we also offer specialized help through every grade of homeschooling, as well as in the area of special learning needs. More information is available at these links:
  • If you operate a business, you may be surprised to know that you can get a fantastic rate on credit card processing from Cornerstone, a company that shares your values. Visit www.cornerstonepaymentsystems.com.

To maximize your member experience, please visit our website and take advantage of all the member benefits you can. After all, we are gathering them just for you!
