I see 'Integral Steps' and "Stripe" when I'm purchasing masterclasses. Why is that?
Integral Steps is the not-for-profit organization collaborating with the VDM to host the Masterclass Series. Stripe is a payment platform we use to process payments. The collaboration with Integral Steps permits us to create a registration page with the lowest fees and an embedded option for scholarship donations. 100% of the fees collected through the masterclass portal are used exclusively for VDM activities (masterclass teaching fees, advertising, administrative costs).
If you are in need of financial assistance to attend the masterclass series, please fill out this very short scholarship request form and we will be happy to help as much as we can.
You can make a contribution when you register. Simply put a "VDM Scholarship Fund Contribution" in your cart. For larger amounts, for example $60, you can put two $30 contribution tickets in your cart
Note: All funds received through Integral Steps/VDM channels are reserved exclusively for VDM Scholarships and related VDM activities. The VDM thanks Integral Steps for providing much needed registration and accounting support.
