Little Green Light is a great platform for a growing non-profit.

Pros

Little Green Light (LGL) makes it SO easy to search, edit, and update info on members. I'm able to track and engage with members much easier than I use. Plus importing and exporting content through excel is super easy. The platform is jam-packed with features...everything you could ever need for membership, donor, and volunteer management.

Cons

There's almost too many features! I've gotten use to overlooking things that don't apply to my organization's needs but being able to turn certain things off would be helpful.

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

Cons

I don't have any cons so far, I've been using Little Green Light for 2 months now and I love everything about it so far.

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 more intuitive handling of ticket sales for concerts, but that is all.
I can't think of anything else.

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.

Cons

There are no "cons" that I can think of. My experience at two schools with LGL has always been positive, which isn't something I can say about other donor databases I used.

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.

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

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.

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.

The best part about Little Green Light is their five-star customer service. When I can't find what I need in their extensive library of help topics and video tutorials, I just shoot them an email, and most of the time, I hear back the same day with an answer, a solution, or, on occasion, a fix to a bug I uncovered. (I was a software tester in a previous life.)

Likes Least

It's somewhat minor, but I wish the Forms editor provided a WYSIWYG interface.

Recommendations

As a small but growing nonprofit, Every Child Fed needed a donor management tool that would grow with us, but fell within our current budget. The free options were either too complicated to customize for a nonprofit or lacked the functionality to track and report on donor engagement. Little Green Light offered us a cart full of functions at a price we could afford, and it's intuitive enough so that all our employees and volunteers can find the information they need. LGL will help you get your data imported and get up and running fast.

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.

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.

Advice to Others

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

I converted my organization's database from FundRaiser in July and have not once regretted my decision. We previously tried to convert to a different database and after 2 days of on-site training with that company, I couldn't even locate a sample record. On the other hand, not only did I (and I'm not a tech person) migrate our entire database myself and merge additional Excel documents in, after only a couple of hours of reading instructions and playing around, I already understood not only how to locate a record but how to enter, report, send an acknowledgement, etc. I occasionally run into things that I can't figure out on my own or by reading the LGL blog but when I reach out to customer service, they respond so quickly and always are able to resolve my issue. I really can't think of anything that can't be done through LGL. We're so happy with it that we're now looking at integrating our payment processing and e-newsletter system so that we have the best data on our constituents possible. I cannot say enough good things about this product. For a small organization like ours with no tech support, this has been a blessing since it is so easy to use and so reasonably priced.

Pros

Ease of use, built-in reports, customer service

Cons

It takes awhile to figure out which fields to use for what but I think that would be the case for any software and depends on a lot on how you approach development

We are a small nonprofit that didn't have a large donor base and didn't have a lot of money to spend on a database. We stumbled upon LGL and it was the best choice! It is very easy to use and modify to create fields specific to your needs. No setup fee, all cloud based, you can have as many users as you'd like and it starts at a monthly rate. It's awesome. We are a school, so we use it to track prospective students all the way through alumnae, families, donors, etc. It does it all for us. I highly recommend this to any small organization that wants to transition away from using excel docs to track clients & donors.

Pros

It's very user-friendly and is the best price you can get for donor software.

Cons

I don't really have any!

Advice to Others

I highly recommend this to any small nonprofit. It has so many great features and it's easy to run reports, create appeal letters, track email communications, etc. It also syncs with constant contact and mail chimp - so you can manage your email list too.

As an experienced database manager, primarily using the most expensive software out there on the market (and those just below the price level), nonprofits need to consider Little Green Light as their software go-to. It's easy to use - from a novice to an expert - it makes all the sense in the world nonprofits needs to build, maintain and grow their database, it's cost effective and the support is instant. LGL is the database nonprofits have needed all along... but instead struggle to make a more expensive system work while pinching pennies to do good in the world. Their trial period is all you need to fall in love and make the switch! I would recommend LGL to anyone out there looking to build their nonprofit database - or switch from their current one to a new, more robust system that costs less but is as effective as anything out there.

Pros

It's easy. I'm used to a lot of additional gimmicks and fields that only make understanding more complicated in the end. LGL does everything a big database does but is so much simpler to understand.

Cons

From a small-medium size nonprofit, I don't have any complaints! For big nonprofits that may integrate with other database systems, this system may not be that product... outside of that, this system helps nonprofits do their jobs easily!

Advice to Others

The back-end system that's been built, the nonprofit/database/systematic knowledge that's gone into this system is to be applauded. What also should be applauded is the mindset of management/developers to produce a product that benefits the greater good. We all need products that make our world a better place and LGL most certainly does that from a business model. Bravo.

I have assisted 2 nonprofits in switching to LGL. It was a huge undertaking with the first one, over 40,000 constituents and 350,000 gifts to migrate over. They helped me find a qualified consultant, and we accomplished it in a very timely manner. The end result is Fabulous! I would HIGHLY recommend for anyone looking for a flexible, all-encompassing software!

Pros

The flexibility of LGL to accommodate and streamline multiple softwares, such as volunteer software, grant software, donor software, client software, calendars, tasks, etc. LGL has been so helpful in suggesting solutions, and allowing us to eliminate several costly, single-use software products. Their support and help sections are unheard of! I have NEVER dealt with a company that is so prompt in their responses and so helpful. They have webinars and many video trainings available to do on your own time. And their cost is one-fourth of what we paid previously for our old dinosaur program. Queries and programs are very easy to use. Very modern look, totally customizable for your organization. You will be amazed at everything it is capable of.

Cons

The only thing I wish it would do is have an appeal performance report, and I believe that is in the works now.

Advice to Others

Look around at all the other software that is available. You will see that Little Green Light is an exceptional bargain for all that you get. We are currently tracking donations, volunteers, clients, and grants. Their prices are very fair for large companies with a lot of constituents, which is rare in this industry. We pay one-fourth of what we were paying previously. Our previous company's help was marginal, and they specialized in making you feel stupid when you contacted them! Not LGL. They are kind, honest and very informative. You get a free month trial with LGL, plus if you refer other companies, they reward you with credit on your account. It's a win-win situation all around.

Our public charter school is using LGL. We've had the subscription for a year but have only just begin to maximize our use of its features. Customer support has been so accessible and responsive as we've loaded our lists into the system.

Pros

The software is easy to use. Directions make sense and are not hard to follow. It feels as though it was designed by someone with a strong understanding of philanthropy and a very good sense of how to design a database that's easy for users to remember how to navigate.

Cons

I guess it would be better if it were free!

Advice to Others

I think this is a great database for a smaller development shop.
