In order to claim educational funding, our Expense Form needs to be filled in and printed off, signed and sent to us along with your original receipts. Your receipts must comply with the Funding Policy, and must reflect your approved Education Program Plan. You also have the option of using Purchase Orders to purchase resources directly out of claimable funding.
You may send receipts to us at any time during the year, but anything sent after the last business day of May will apply to the following school year. Our funding schedule helps us to refund you in a consistent and timely manner.

EFT Application Apply for Electronic Funds Transfer for direct deposit of refunds. Please ensure that we have this form before the end of September. Refunds are transmitted electronically. If we do not have this form until after a submission deadline, you will not receive a refund until the next payment date, or in July 2020 via cheque.
Before you begin:
- ORIGINAL receipts must sent to the WISDOM office. We do recommend that you make a copy of the Expense Form and receipts that you send to us, in case your originals are lost in the mail. [Photocopies are not acceptable even when it is desirable to keep the original for warranty purposes, as in the case of a computer. We keep all receipts on file, and in the case of a warranty issue, arrangements can be made to return the original receipt to you.]
- The receipts must be for expenses that you incurred for the home education of your children with WISDOM. Allowable and non-allowable expenses are listed in our Funding Policy. If the educational nature of your purchase is not self-evident, please attach a written explanation of how the purchase fits into your education program plan. Receipts must be no more than two years old at the time we reimburse them.
- Please organize your receipts by date of purchase, and number them.

To Carry Over Un-claimed Funding to next year
