About Us

We’re on a mission to enable your mission.

The average small to midsize nonprofit uses three to five tools to manage their donors, volunteers, and communications. At Neon One, we envision a world where organizations have simple and connected tools to help them make real, lasting change in the world.

Neon One started in 2018 when four technology companies came together and decided there was an easier way for nonprofits to use technology to enable their mission – a more connected way. Since then, we have built the industry’s most comprehensive suite of tools for small to midsize nonprofits.

Designed to grow with you, Neon One provides software and resources that help nonprofit professionals make the connections that matter – connections with their peers, connections with their supporters, and connections with their mission.

Our Core Values

Make Good Happen

We channel our empathy, passion, and drive, along with our belief that technology can empower social good organizations to reach new heights together.

Be Extraordinary

We strive for greatness – in our products, our service, and our collaboration. We support and encourage each other to go beyond our reach because we believe beyond any known end point is something remarkable.

Own the Solution

We know every problem is an opportunity to create a solution. We don’t hesitate to roll up our sleeves, take initiative, and hold ourselves, and each other, accountable to the results.

Grow Together

We leave egos at the door and bravely embrace the journey to bring our best selves every day. We believe “we” is better than “me” and foster an inclusive work environment that celebrates our diversity of thoughts and opinions.

Innovate Fearlessly

We explore daily, value big thinking, and seize any opportunity to evolve, adapt, or change. We stride boldly towards our goals by choosing to challenge assumptions, fail forward, reward progress over perfection, and build for the future.

Stand for Our Customers

We know our success comes only from our customer’s success. Love for our customers is woven into every decision we make, from how we engage, to how and when we respond, to how we listen, and how we incorporate customer needs, concerns and ideas into our business decisions.
