Salsa vs. Little Green Light

Salsa CRM is a more robust, scalable Little Green Light alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching.

1) Scalable

If you’re looking for more than just donor management and marketing automation, and need a scalable solution that offers online fundraising, online advocacy, event registration, or peer to peer fundraising, your choice is obvious. With Salsa CRM, all you have to do is flip the switch to activate additional modules.

Executing online advocacy or peer to peer campaigns with another system or vendor just doesn’t any sense. Track all your constituents in the same database of record and you’ll be able to target with the right message, at the right time, online or offline.

2) Robust

If your development team is looking for sophisticated constituent management functionality such as householding, batch gift entry, pledge management, major gift cultivation, and donation reporting by campaign, fund, and appeal, then Salsa CRM is your answer.

The 2017 Donor Management Systems Guide by NTEN/Idealware awarded Salsa’s functionality 11 ‘excellent’ ratings with only 5 ‘excellent’ ratings for Little Green Light CRM.

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. You'll need third party vendors for your email marketing, payment processing, and more.

Twelve years ago I founded an organization with a vision of advancing women's health, safety and economic security. With an ambitious vision like this, we need a CRM system that made life just a bit easier for our small staff. Salsa Labs has provided the affordable solution to help us manage our fundraising, advocacy and communications. After using their services for a year, we've built up our supporter base that we're now able to organize, track and engage with a few clicks of a button!
