 Best donor management software without the fluff!

Customer service is top notch. I've gotten answers within 5 minutes and didn't need any more help. LGL is very intuitive and easy to learn. The importing and mapping was super easy and everything went really well. My organization migrated from Frontstreams' Giftworks to LGL and we liked LGL even ...

Benefits

LGL is built for fundraising. You can track gifts, grants, asks, pledges, and tasks; plan events and send appeals; create mail merges; everything you need to make the most of your development efforts. LGL offers complete constituent profiles, giving histories, tasks, memberships, event attendance, and relationships—all of which can be documented and viewed on a single page. Manage your schedule and stay on track. Automated reminders and notifications keep everyone up to date and on task, so you can keep moving forward. Perform interactive, visual searches. On-screen reporting views show the information you need in real time.

LGL helps you to be more efficient and effective at fundraising.

Perform fundraising activities more efficiently:
Generate acknowledgement letters with just a couple of clicks and easily manage appeal mailings even if you're using segmentations. Track who is coming to your event, including custom fields for things like table assignments and meal preferences.

Know who your prospects and donors are:
With Little Green Light it is very easy to understand who's in your database. You can add as many attribute tags as you want, and you can query on each constituent's entire history, from event attendance to volunteering efforts and gift patterns. Use this information to keep up with your most important prospects and donors and to send smart appeals to everyone in your database.

Build webforms easily to collect information and donations from your website. Every LGL account includes an LGL Forms account, which lets you build web forms that you can embed in your website. Information collected in forms can be easily mapped to send the data into your LGL account. With a payment processor account (Stripe or ProPay) you can also collect donations and other payments via your LGL Forms.

Best donor management software without the fluff!

07/07/2017

Customer service is top notch. I've gotten answers within 5 minutes and didn't need any more help. LGL is very intuitive and easy to learn. The importing and mapping was super easy and everything went really well. My organization migrated from Frontstreams' Giftworks to LGL and we liked LGL even more than Giftworks newest platform...plus it's half the price!

Pros

- Easy to use - Great value for everything you get - Great customer service - Powerful reporting - Has a "bulk edit" feature that makes changes so easy and fast - Attractive design

Great software for donor management and so much more

07/07/2017

I LOVE Little Green Light and would highly recommend it to any non-profit organization. I have already referred another organization who is using it

Pros

The ability to customize and add fields; tech support can add more complex fields that you need Multiple users can access it Easy to generate customized acknowledgements and mailings Great to have all our data in our place Can attach documents and keep track of contact with constituents Tech support is amazing! I've gotten answers on a Sunday morning 10 minutes after I asked the question I research other options and all others were too complicated, cost a lot more, and didn't offer a 30-day free trial First year subscription through Techsoup makes it even more affordable for small organizations

Cons

I would like the more intuitive handling of ticket sales for concerts, but that is all.

Love Little Green Light

07/07/2017

I've brought LGL to two independent schools in my capacity as an Advancement Director and it's made a world of difference in both places. Customer service is fantastic -- I've received quick feedback even on holidays. The team has also added new options at our request when needed (e.g. adding an employment title field for spouses). Can't say enough good things about it.

Pros

Easy to use and to quickly find the data you need, responsive customer service, always improving as customer needs change and grow.

Unbelievably powerful online database at an affordable price!

18/06/2017

After years of keeping our member/donor database in an Excel spreadsheet that was passed along from volunteer to volunteer, we wanted to find an online database that would maintain contact/donor info while allowing multiple users and also being affordable. Little Green Light has exceeded our expectations. We were able to sign up for a 1-year trial for the cost of one month, through a special offer from TechSoup. It has been a fantastic way to become familiar with LGL and begin to explore its many capabilities. I will be recommending to our board that we sign up permanently, as it will help to move our nonprofit to a higher level of sophistication and strengthen our fundraising capabilities. Compared to similar products we've looked at, LGL is the best bet for the buck, hands down. Given its affordable price and powerful features -- not to mention its various tutorials and options for tech support -- LGL is the perfect choice for many small to medium nonprofits. This last spring, for the first time, we were able to zero in on a highly specialized list for our annual fundraiser invitation list, using LGL's powerful search tool, helping us to achieve one of our most successful fundraising events in recent years.

Pros

Robust capability for managing basic member data and donation records, powerful search function, convenient generating of acknowledgment letters and emails, web-based forms, and terrific tech support.

Cons

The member records are so robust and complex, sometimes it can be a bit challenging to navigate the various levels and options.

Great for very small non profits

08/06/2017

For the tiny non profit we are, I think it serves us well.

Pros

It is affordable for a small non profit and doesn't have too many fancy features we can't or won't use. Pretty intuitive as well.

Cons

For any additional features, you need to buy additional software which increases the price. I was kind of going they would have the ability to email from the software. That seemed pretty basic. Also generating letters to print has been problematic.

06/06/2017

A lot of the challenges we have with using this software comes mostly from implementation snafus; lots of trial and error. My advice to avoid this is to set aside a month or two for one staffer (or a team if you're blessed with one of those) to focus exclusively on how the software will be implemented, who needs to use what tools when, and to set up formal procedures before it goes into active use.

Pros

-easy to learn -love love love the form creation tools -streamlined integration with other platforms, after some work (MailChimp is the one we use most often) -flexible categorization of constituents -a very responsive support team

Cons

-not as customizable as I would like -heavy reliance on integration with other platforms -have had some issues with integration syncing

Clunky, skinny, but cheap

02/05/2017

Customer service is friendly but I don't like that I can't reach them immediately.

Pros

This is great if you are a smaller organization--maybe no more than 2,000-3,000 donors. It features basic gift entry, pledges, contact info, etc. If you are a nonprofit just getting started, this could work for you.

Cons

Not intuitive. Hard to learn. Tutorials are complicated. I've been working with it for 4 years now and still not sure how to run reports. Not robust nor intuitive. Our organization has moved past the effectiveness threshold of this product, and we are looking at others.

An Apt Fit for a Non-Profit

19/04/2017

Overall a wonderful program.

Pros

Ease of Access, Being able to setup multiple events, campaigns, etc. with seamless transition. Even though I have worked with other CRM's/Operating systems before I appreciate the startup/upload phase of data to be the smoothest to date.

Cons

I appreciate the ability to add almost unlimited amounts of data about a patron/consituent. It would be better if I could customize some of the titles as they do not completely apply to arts programs. I enjoy being able to filter through most options, would look for more development in mailings and e-mails.

Great product for the price!

01/02/2017

If you are looking for a cheap and inclusive system this is it! Can do almost everything you need! Some of the reasons we left was that it was limited in some functionality and the forms were not very engaging on the front-end. Also, the user-friendliness on the back-end.

Great service!

10/01/2017

At first, we thought it would be a basic database type CRM, since the price is so reasonable. We needed more than that, and we got all that we needed. The generation of the acknowledgments, reports and the batching couldn't be easier. And, I can't tell you how great the customer service is. Top notch.

Pros

The help/faq section, tutorials, etc. Everything you need to know is in there with great examples. It's extremely easy to figure out.

Cons

I haven't found anything yet, but it's only been a month.

Recommendations to others considering Little Green Light

If you're a low volume user, keep up with the classes, tutorials. They're there, might as well use them.
