A 2021 study by the Illinois State Board of Education found that participation in two or more activities is more predictive of post-secondary success than one’s SAT score.
High school activities encompass a diverse range of extracurricular pursuits that play a crucial role in shaping students' academic journeys and personal development. From traditional sports teams like football and basketball to academic clubs, honor societies, and school-wide events such as prom and homecoming, these activities offer students opportunities to explore their interests, cultivate leadership skills, and forge lasting connections. The Activities Director, akin to the CEO of extracurricular engagement, is central to high school activities. Whether they use Omella directly to sell Prom tickets and handle check-in or invite their teacher-sponsors to run fundraisers, sell merchandise, or manage permission slips, Omella's high school activities templates are meant to shortcut form creation by leveraging what is already working well at the best run high schools in the country.

Yes, Omella is PCI compliant under "PCI validation: SAQ A". We utilize Stripe Elements technology which has financial input fields that are done securely in Stripe's iframe. Stripe is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
Omella uses Stripe’s Elements technology, which has financial input fields that are secured in Stripe's iframe. Payment data, including card numbers, are sent directly to Stripe and never reaches our internal servers. Omella triggers new payments based on the Stripe’s customer identifier and its payment methods. Therefore, Omella does not have any record of the payer’s card number in our database and logs. That means hackers will never get sensitive card or bank information from us.
The transmission between the payers, the Omella page, and Stripe is encrypted using 256bit SSL/TLS. Stripe is one of the most secure and trusted payment providers. It is used by Twitter, Shopify, Kickstarter, and Lyft.
By default, Omella is completely free, there are no monthly fees and all transaction fees are optional. That means that your organization can collect $1M online using Omella and keep all $1M. What’s more, we offer all of this without requiring your payers to cover any fees either. So how does Omella make money?
There are 3 ways:
What all of these fees have in common is that they are completely optional. If you, as an organization decide to keep tips enabled and do not offer recurring payments, you will not pay any fees whatsoever. Likewise, your payers always have a free way to pay when they checkout with ACH instead of card.
We think this model is a win-win, allowing us to continue building great software for your organization, who gets to keep more - or all! - of what you collect: the choice is yours.
