When I built something exactly like this for a non-profit circa 2002 the
simplest and easiest thing was zope :) especially if you use the
management interface to do everything instead of writing modules and
doing things the naive way instead of the right way.
As to 'lean' I think that will depend on what your baseline is. If its
j2ee frameworks almost everything is lean, if its bottle, well almost
nothing is lean.
