Unified Platforms to Raise More Funds for Education

LeanStream and Hello Donor announced a technology and marketing affiliation enabling schools and school districts to leverage the best of both digital fundraising platforms.

“Integrating Hello Donor’s Changemaker round-up and recurring revenue functionalities with LeanSteam’s existing platform provides our education partners with another powerful resource to drive fundraising,” said Jason Taylor, President at LeanStream.

Optimized Methods of School Fundraising

Many schools and school districts currently benefit from deploying Hello Donor or LeanStream independently. Now, integration of the respective platforms makes school fundraising even more simple with the ability to increase reach and raise. Since the platforms are complimentary with obvious synergies, bringing both technologies and success teams together will optimize fundraising for school clients.

“We get it. Fundraising isn’t easy but it can be made simple. We are excited to be working alongside LeanStream and co-marketing each other’s platforms so we can do even more good for the school clients we serve,” said Chris Allen, President at Hello Donor.

Co-Marketing Efforts

Through the partnership, each company will facilitate introductions of the other across existing and prospective client networks. The goal of co-marketing the platforms is to drive not only growth of the businesses but expansion of the impact – essentially, doing good by doing good.

“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. Unification of online fundraising, event ticketing, marketplace activities, and school fee transactions into one platform is a tremendous value; so, inclusion of the Changemaker Initiative makes perfect sense.” Dr. John Barge former State Superintendent, Georgia Department of Education.

About Hello Donor
