F.A.Q.

Q. How much time would this class take?
A. We’re aiming for 1.5~2 hours unless otherwise noted. It can extend a bit to finish up things or to answer any questions after class.

Q. Can I become a monthly supporter today to get discount?
A. Yes, for charities like us who provide year-round services, monthly support is very important & we thank you for your interest in becoming our supporter.  Please click here to become a monthly supporter!

Q. Why do I have to register & pay fee?
A. This process is to prevent no-show.  In the beginning, we did email sign up only and we often got 5~10+ signups but no one ever showed up.  This is to make sure our time is valued as much as yours.

Q. Can’t I just come to class without registering?
A. If there’s a seat available, we will never turn you away.  But some classes have personalized materials that are prepared for each registered individual and yours will not be ready.  Also if there’s no one registered by 24hour prior to the class, class will be cancelled without notice.

Q. How much $$ do I need to prepare for the class?
A. You will not be expected to pay for anything during the class and everything you need will be provided.

Q. Do I need to prepare anything else?
A. Everything you need for the first class will be provided. Any optional items you might need will be presented but you’ll have chance to sleep on it.

Q. Will my donation really go to Charity? And can I get donation receipt?
A. Yes, everything we get will go to Clear Charity, a 501(c)3 organization.  And while you can use your order confirmation as receipt, your registration fees are NOT tax deductible as you are receiving a service that’s worth far more than you’re paying.  According to IRS rule, only amount that exceed market value is considered as donation. (Example: if you paid $100 for $50 worth service/product.  WordPress classes are valued at $100)

However, if you sign up as monthly supporter, your monthly donation is tax deductible since it’s pure donation.  Another reason to become our monthly supporter!  (Your discounted $10 registration fee however would not be tax deductible per same rule above)
