Salsa Labs v. Little Green Light

Donor Management & Fundraising Software Comparison

Why convert twice? Salsa will grow with your nonprofit.

Little Green Light is a good donor management system for micro or very small nonprofits. But, if you’re a small nonprofit, what you really need are tools to grow
your supporter base and boost your fundraising. That’s Salsa.

You have a choice. You can start with Little Green Light and then convert to Salsa later or you can start with Salsa now and raise more money, operate more efficiently and communicate more effectively with the donating public.

Tina chose Salsa over Little Green Light

Tina Davis

Development Director,
The Goodtimes Project

"With Salsa, we combined three different platforms into one!"

"I decided on moving to Salsa because it combined 3 different platforms into one, allowing for better integration and one pricing structure. I really like Little Green Light and believe it is a great platform for small/medium organizations. However, they don’t have a peer to peer fundraising option. Their email and donation pages are also very basic. With this move I am combining our donor database (LGL), peer to peer fundraising platform (Classy), and email system (MailChimp), into one solution!"

Why Nonprofits Choose Salsa Labs Over Little Green Light?

  • Little Green Light is a nice solution for the smallest of nonprofits. While it provides the basics of donor management, it offers no solution for marketing automation or online supporter engagement.
  • Salsa provides deeper donor management functionality coupled with email marketing with drip campaigns to cultivate prospects and to turn one-time donors into recurring donors. Salsa also includes unlimited fundraising and event
    registration forms and peer-to-peer campaigns. Use Salsa sign up forms and
    Facebook advertising to attract people with an affinity for your cause.
  • Salsa was recognized as a G2 Crowd High Performer for the Winter quarter of 2019 and was awarded the "User's Love Us" badge in 2019 as well!
