The past few years have financially hurt homeschool nonprofits in a number of ways. One key method to supplement our organization’s revenue comes through partnerships with homeschool affiliates, ministries and partners.

Please take a moment to look through all the opportunities and resources that the following affiliates and venues provide!

Curriculum Affiliates

Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW)

A time-tested and extremely popular curriculum source, the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) provides language arts resources for not just writing, but listening, speaking, and reading. Many classical education enthusiasts require and use IEW in their courses.

If you are buying from IEW, please consider using our affiliate link:

Just make sure you’ve chosen Midwest Parent Educators (MPE) as your charity to support, and you can also start searching. Each search will make a donation to MPE at no extra cost to you!

When you use coupons and buy online through Goodshop, the site makes a donation to the nonprofit or school of your choice for almost every purchase made.


By using the “Sell for Good” program on the popular neighborhood social network, Nextdoor, you can support a local nonprofit (we’re listed as Midwest Parent Educators). Before selling items, you can decide what portion of your sales go to the charity of your choice (more info here).

Standardized Testing Affiliates

Classic Learning Test (CLT)

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) is based on the classical education approach and is only 2 hours long, can be proctored at home and online, and opens up unique awards and scholarship opportunities. More than 200 colleges have formally adopted the CLT as a viable alternative to taking the SAT/ACT. (HSLDA’s Patrick Henry College is one of them.)

We’ve partnered with CLT to offer in-group, discounted testing opportunities to homeschool families. Our unique discount code is MIDWEST and offers your families 25% off any CLT, CLT10, or CLT8.
