Welcome to Firmly Planted Family

Supporting Firmly Planted Family


Partner with FCHM


Did you know that Firmly Planted Family is a support-based ministry? Every gift you make to Firmly Planted Family helps us plant homeschool co-ops around the world.

Membership dues and charter fees cover roughly 20% of the funds necessary to operate Firmly Planted Family. 

The remaining
80% of our operating expenses are covered through the faithful financial support of families like yours.

God is doing an exciting thing through Firmly Planted!  We hope you will join us in encouraging a new generation of homeschooling families.


Firmly Planted Family never turns anyone away for inability to pay.  You can make a real difference by helping us cover costs in a few simple ways:

Monthly support is the best way to support us financially. You can also designate your gift to go to

  • Scholarship Funds for Members (Consider sponsoring a member monthly for $24!)
  • Scholarship Funds for Charter Fees ($200 will allow you to sponsor a co-op)
  • General operating expenses



Firmly Planted Family is a non-profit ministry. All donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you for your support!

PRAY for Firmly Planted Family

Every homeschool co-op that First Class plants represents homeschool parents and children just like you! These families need your prayers, too.


Your financial support allows us to minister to each individual co-op while also expanding into new communities.

Monthly support is particularly vital.   Consistent montly giving, whether your gift is large or small, allows us to pay support staff and basic operating expenses. Your giving puts "feet" to the vision and mission of Firmly Planted Family!

We have partnered with E-givng to make montly stewardship easier than ever.  Click here to give to Firmly Planted Family.


Firmly Planted Family is staffed largely by volunteers.  Currently,  Firmly Planted has only one full time staff person.  Volunteers are needed, and you do not have to live near our office to help.  Many of our voulunteers live thousands of miles away!  If you can volunteer your time, please contact us at 360.326.8826.


If you are excited about the ministry of First Class, share it with your pastors and friends.  Our heart and vision is to see Firmly Planted Family co-ops in every state throughout this country--and around the world.  Through your efforts, we are touching thousands of lives each day.
