- We accept Visa and Master Card. You can pay on our website or over the phone, and we will issue a receipt which you could then use to claim funding later on.
- We accept cheques made out to WISDOM Home Schooling or The Gilbertine Institute.

Remember, an event can't run without sufficient numbers to offset costs. Because we don't charge much more than absolutely necessary just to cover costs, we have to have a minimum number of participants registered.
Cancellation: If we have to cancel an event due to low registration, we will refund your money. However, if you cancel within two weeks of a scheduled event, your money can not be refunded. Your last-minute cancellation may otherwise close down an entire event, if the funds are no longer there for us to run it.
