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 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.
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.
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.
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.
We've run into a couple of relatively minor problems.

Our Perfect Solution

Reviewed 2 years 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.

Best Donor Management Around, Overwhelming for Beginners

Reviewed 13 days ago
Pros

There is some learning curve when you first get started but overall LGL is an excellent tool for tracking your donors and keeping tabs on their journey through your program or nonprofit donor development funnel. There's no better way to track the appeals you send to who, phone conversations and letters that go out. The API and integration capabilities are satisfactory enough making it easy to pull data from whatever source you need. If you're looking to segment your donors like a pro, set alerts so you never forget to reach out and keep them organized, LGL is for you.

Cons

LGL Forms has always been very basic and sometimes kind of a mess to set up the form and have it look nice. You're not going to get anything beautiful here. But LGL's forms tool gets the job done if you need to take a quick informal survey among your donors or something like that.

Quickly Outgrew LGL

Reviewed a year 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.

User-friendly and useful for any sized organization

Reviewed 3 months ago

The customer service is phenomenal and makes ease of use incredibly high. The training videos are plentiful and very useful. Personalized options are available and the system can be built to serve the needs of each individual organization.

Pros

LGL is very easy to self-train on, as its features are simple to learn and manage. The system can be set up with personalized features or can be used in its simplest form. Also, because it is all managed online, that makes it easy to manage a virtual office.

Cons

There is not anything about LGL that I think makes the software less appealing.
