Lean Stream

All the features
you need to run
successful fundraisers

Our powerful fundraising software is a full suite

of tools for all your education fundraising needs.

Needs Gallery

Centralized crowdfunding to promote school, classroom and organization needs and district strategic initiatives. LeanStream is designed to maintain control, transparency and visibility over fundraising campaigns. With the Needs Gallery, you can engage local businesses to offer corporate matching contributions. Enable ‘offline’ giving by allowing you to accept pledges. You can even allow donors to setup automatic recurring donations.

Teacher Honorarium

The honorarium is a legacy donation fund that allows
families to place a donation in the name of or in honor of a teacher, principal, or any school staff member at a school in the designated district. This feature allows donors to leave comments to show their appreciation. Pledges and company donations are accepted in
addition to standard donations with a credit or debit card.

Company Giving

Companies can get in on the action with the Company Giving function.  There are two ways to give – through a “matching” feature allowing companies to supercharge individual donations with a “match” in an equal amount or through a straight up donation.  Companies will have their logos (with embedded link) displayed when they give, providing for visibility and acknowledgment of the support. Giving can be electronic or, with the pledge feature, by a check so as to avoid processing fees.

WiFi on the Go

Give student families and employees the opportunity to get
unlimited internet and a free hotspot with a qualifying monthly donation of $50 per month. The hotspot is free and powered by T-Mobile. The device is shipped directly to the family. A generous portion of the proceeds is retained by the client, so purchases support the school or district. LeanStream manages everything from collecting payment to
technical support.

Secure Transaction Management

Maintain real-time visibility and control over ongoing and historical fundraising initiatives. Our administrative dashboard offers teachers, principals and administrators quick and easy reports. Progress tracking and detailed transaction and donor reporting are at the tips of your fingers.
