New: AutoPost for Financial

Instead of laboriously logging payments, quickly select and approve batches of payments and apply them to your ledger with just a few clicks. You’ll keep families more up-to-date on their billing status and save literally hours every month in data entry.
*AutoPost requires Gradelink Payments, which is a premium service. There is no additional fee for AutoPost.
Don’t Leave Funding on the Table
Due to recent changes in the CARES Act, up to 90% of churches, schools, and nonprofits may qualify for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). Our friends at Sharp Consultancy have helped many schools and can guide you too. Just answer a few questions at their site to see if your school qualifies.*
*Gradelink may receive a small referral commission for ERC funding recovered on behalf of your school.
