Raise money virtually and build a culture of reading.

Schools who sign up to join Beanstack by August 31st will receive:

  • Beta access to the new readathon platform
  • A toolkit of resources to launch and promote your readathon
  • 90% of all donations pledged for their school
  • A chance to win an additional prize donation, up to $5,000
  • Invitation to a national virtual event

Looking for a way to raise money for your school or school library? 

Students will read to earn donations from their family and friends. They’ll aim to read at least 20 minutes each day and log in the app to earn virtual badges, gain streaks, and compete as classrooms.


The Beanstack Reading Fundraiser platform allows educators and parents to manage readathons for their school throughout the year.

Raising funds virtually because of COVID?

School leaders and PTA/PTO groups across the country have struggled to fundraise using traditional methods during the COVID pandemic. Our reading challenge fundraiser is a turnkey way to raise money for your school, without the need for in-person events or physical products to sell.

Beanstack helps educators motivate students to read more and raise money for their schools.
