Application security and customer peace of mind is our priority. My School Change works to protect all customer information, prevent unauthorised account activity and ensure payments are transacted safely.
My School Change uses Stripe for payment processing. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.)

We have a minimum donation of $2 a week for each school that you select.
For those that link a nominated card and bank account, transactions made on the nominated card will round up to the nearest dollar.
For example, if a transaction is made for $16.95, we will round up the difference to $17.00. This means, you will donate $0.05.
To save endless paperwork and clogging your bank feed, we add up all these ‘microtransactions’ weekly and process one donation to your selected school(s).
My School Change processes all transactions weekly at 3pm Thursday AEST.
Yes. Within the app the ‘My Impact’ section will showcase the transactions made and the round-up amount(s).

That’s easy. You are able to set your minimum and maximum weekly goal within the app. This ensures that you know how much you will be donating, no surprises!
We try to keep the process as simple as possible, at present, there can only be one card linked to an account. However, you could attach another debit/credit card to another unique email account. You are able to update and change credit cards through the application in 1 simple step.
