Here’s What We Do
Neon One connects small to mid-sized nonprofits with the technology and resources that empower them to build a community of generosity.
Bloomerang helps nonprofits deliver a better giving experience so they can raise more funds and create lasting change.
Our Main Differences
Neon CRM Offers a Robust User Interface
While some users find Bloomerang’s user interface to be simple and easy to use, Neon CRM users find that our additional features allow them to meet more of their needs. On top of that, our automated workflows allow users to automate redundant administrative tasks, which makes managing your workload easier and more efficient.
A Full View of Donors
Neon CRM includes categorization functionality that allows you to easily segment donations, members, and event registrations for easy follow-up communications and reporting on fundraising performance. Bloomerang’s platform has revenue-type tracking limitations that obscure organization history and leads to confusing reporting.
Data Migration with Ease
Both Neon CRM and Bloomerang offer data import packages for an additional fee. With Neon CRM’s recent import enhancements, users enjoy a seamless way to import their data and ensure it’s mapped correctly. Bloomerang users have noted that the data import process requires strenuous and time-consuming manual data clean up prior to the import in order for fields to map properly. Neon CRM also guides you step-by-step to lessen the stress of migrating your data.
Unlike other nonprofit technology vendors, Neon CRM doesn’t charge based on the number of records you have in your database. Our revenue-based pricing is designed to let you focus on your mission and grow unrestricted.
Comprehensive Nonprofit Technology
Both Neon CRM and Bloomerang integrate with all of the tools you know and love. But integrating with outside technology comes with limitations and greater complexity. Only Neon CRM is part of a suite of products designed to manage the full range of nonprofit operational needs, from marketing and revenue generation to program operations, and financial reconciliation — with seamless integration.
Equipped with dozens of help articles and videos, our Support Center provides you with easy to follow how-to articles on everything in Neon CRM. If all else fails, you can always submit a ticket to our support team directly.
All of our packages come equipped with unlimited ticket support. On top of that, we offer 4-5 live group trainings per week for our customers to learn more about new release features and best practices using Neon CRM. If you ever feel that you need additional support, we offer live chat and phone support options for a small monthly fee, plus you can always purchase extended training hours with our professional services team.
Neon One Academy
As a Neon One customer, you gain access to Neon One Academy which is a database of hundreds of modules from orientation, to detailed CRM courses, and quick reference articles and videos. Whether you’re looking for a more in depth course on how to onboard a new feature, or a quick bite-sized refresher video on how to add a new user, Neon One Academy has everything you could need to succeed.
We offer our customers a portal to submit ideas for new product ideas and enhancements. Within the portal, you can peruse the forum to see what your fellow Neon CRM users have already submitted and which stage those ideas are in, and vote on your favorites. Our product team is constantly reviewing the portal to help inform our product roadmap.
See What the Industry Is Saying About Neon CRM
The nonprofit community is tight knit, and nonprofit professionals often rely on knowing what their peers think about different products and platforms. Here’s what others in the industry are saying about Neon CRM.

Data Migration Made Easy
In order to ensure all Neon CRM users have a seamless data migration process, all packages include orientation to set goals and complete basic training, data migration to import legacy data into Neon CRM, and help with configuration. Extended training is offered as an add-on to be purchased for any items.
Your data is the most valuable asset you have! Our team of experts will work with you to ensure your data is organized and ready to use.
Is Revenue-Based Pricing Actually More Cost-Effective?
Many platforms use record-based pricing. But this pricing structure tends to limit growth opportunities as NPOs hesitate to add new records in an effort to avoid being bumped up to the next pricing tier–which can be more costly than you’d expect! Our revenue-based pricing model removes the roadblocks of a surprise price increase and allows organizations to plan their budgets more easily. This pricing model gives you the capacity to grow without fear and limitations.
Do I Really Need All These Bells and Whistles?
You might not need them now! But going without them can limit your potential in the future. It’s vitally important not to limit your potential to grow and scale quickly and affordably. That’s why we offer multiple packages that can meet you where you are today while providing you with the flexibility you’ll need in the future. The cheapest solution now may end up costing you growth opportunities and wasted time in the long run.
Aren’t All Data Migrations the Same?
Your data is the foundation of your donor relationships. Mass uploads and one-size-fits-all import scripts can strip it of what makes it unique to your organization. Our tailored approach involves a full data audit so you can avoid costly enrichment services down the road. With new enhancements to our data import and migration processes, you will be able to import your data seamlessly and ensure that all fields are mapped accurately.
