Little Green Light Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

Little Green Light product overview

What is Little Green Light?

Little Green Light is a flexible donor management and fundraising platform that can be customized to fit the needs of your nonprofit thanks to a wide array of software that can be integrated with the platform. Decades of nonprofit fundraising and development experience went into creating software that is user-friendly and scales as the organization grows, allowing fundraisers and staff to work smarter—not harder—to connect supporters to their mission.

Key benefits of using Little Green Light

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.

Pros
The price was the first great thing, but ease of use is another. You can easily teach yourself to be good at this platform vs more complicated ones.

Heather K.

It's comprehensive and the search function is well-designed. Anything I can't find in the knowledge base I reach out and your absolutely excellent customer service has been responsive and quick.

Jocelyn J.

The flexibility is also great, so we truly feel we can make it as we want it rather than having to fit what we want to what the software can do.

Cons
The user interface on this product is terrible.

When I used the mailer to send a test message to board members, the feedback I received was that the email address made the message appear to be spam so they didn't read it.

Great Solution for Small Non Profits

Reviewed 2 years ago

It's made keep track of and mailing donation receipts a million times easier and has proven to be a good alternative.

Pros

Very Nice Interface and a simple system for entering and searching donor records. Designed with non profits in mind.

Cons

Multi-item donations are annoying to input due to a single line field for donated goods.

The best Donor Management option for small non-profits

Reviewed 16 days ago

Overall, my experience with Little Green Light has been enormously positive and I would highly recommend this product!

Pros

Little Green Light is so easy to use and relatively inexpensive. Our small non-profit has been using LGL for almost 5 years, and we continue to be impressed by how adaptable and customizable it is, and the excellence of the customer service!

Cons

I think there could be improvements with the management of recurring donors - specifically, I'd like to be able to set up an automatic monthly gift entry so I don't have to enter the same info every month. Because we are a watershed council, I would also love if there was a way to connect LGL to mapping software so we can have a way to visualize where our participating and non-participating landowners are located.

Quickly Outgrew LGL

Reviewed 5 months ago

Our organization moved from Excel to Little Green Light and we used LGL for several years. However, we quickly outgrew it. It was ok in the beginning when we weren't generating a lot of income and didn't need to run many reports. However, the more we grew, the more LGL did not work for us and we ended up switching to something else.

Pros

Inexpensive, good for small organizations who are just starting out

Cons

Reporting was not intuitive or easy to use. Lacks fundraising and email marketing capabilities that come with other competitors.

Follow up after 2 years of using LGL

Reviewed a month ago

Not enough accolades to define our experience with LGL. It has solved hours of previous individual copy and paste of information, and ease of correspondence templates and reporting! Again, we couldn't be happier with any program!

Pros

LGL is by far the best CRM I have ever used for price, functionality, integration options, and Customer Support!!

Cons

I would like to have video options included in the future. However, so far, every option I would have liked has been implemented in the two years we have used LGL. The support and constant improvement are just outstanding!

Our Perfect Solution

Reviewed 8 months ago

Coming from Blackbaud's Raiser's Edge ridiculously expensive and overly complicated system, every single thing about LGL is a breath of fresh air and a joy to use. From working with our consultant on data migration to every day use, it's intuitive and simple to use. I'm still learning new and impressive functionality and am pleasantly surprised every time. Updates that are rolled out actually fix issues or improve functionality ( they listen to their users!). Customer service is email only, but usually quick and very helpful. The Facebook community is a nice addition as well - sometimes I can get answers there without needing to contact support. I only wish we had made the switch sooner - would have saved our organization tens of thousands of dollars and myself so much frustration.

Pros

1. The price absolutely cannot be beat, especially compared to Blackbaud. 2. It's just so simple to use. Intuitive, quick, and easy, yet still packed full of useful features.

Cons

Initially, what I liked least was that there was no live phone or chat support; email only. But, the longer I use LGL and see how little I need support, the more I don't mind it at all. Plus email support usually replies quickly and has the solution I need.
