Lean Stream

LeanStream provides unparalleled convenience and administrative safeguards.  By centralizing fundraising and e-commerce activities, district administration is assured that funds raised and collected are properly administered and accounted for.  And ‘digitizing’ fundraising efforts reduces the dependence on ‘door-to-door’ selling – which protects our students.

The unification of online fundraising, event ticketing, marketplace activities, and school fee transactions into one platform is a tremendous value.
