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. More than donor management, our products are designed to manage the full range of nonprofit operational needs, from marketing and revenue generation to program operations and financial reconciliation.
Network for Good offers fundraising software that helps your nonprofit fundraise, host events, create donor relationships, and measure performance in one platform.
Our Core Differences
We’re a Full Feature Platform Built to Grow With You
It might sound intimidating to use a CRM with tons of features on top of the core product. But it can simplify your day-to-day operations! We offer a full-featured solution with a range of capabilities that lets you grow into the platform without worrying about switching vendors down the road. And, with Neon CRM’s intuitive, streamlined tools, you can focus on the modules you need now and use the more advanced features when YOU need them. Plus, resources like Neon One Academy and our other support systems include tons of resources to help you get started with any of the platform’s features.
Comprehensive Reporting and Constituent Tracking
While both Network for Good and Neon CRM have interactive dashboards for a quick assessment of how your organization is doing, Neon CRM has a few more features that make life easier. When you’re in a rush, for example, you can create pre-built reports with the click of a button. You can also schedule future reports or build custom reports for different insights when you have time to sit down and dig into the data.
A Pricing Model With You in Mind
In a perfect world, your nonprofit’s donor base and other audiences will grow year over year. Our revenue-based pricing model lets you do that without the fear of sudden changes in pricing. Your subscription includes unlimited contacts, emails, letters, forms, file storage, and users. Instead of charging you based on the number of records, our tiers are based on the actual revenue you raise, which gives you the freedom to grow your lists without worrying about surprise charges.
With a multitude of help articles and how-to videos at your disposal, our Support Center offers comprehensive, user-friendly resources that guide you through every aspect of Neon CRM, including your subscription, account, users, and all the administrative stuff. If you happen to run into any difficulties, our support team is readily available for direct assistance.
Included in all our packages is unlimited email support, ensuring that your inquiries are promptly addressed. On top of that, you can join one of the 4-5 live group training sessions we hold per week, allowing you to dive into new features and best practices for using Neon CRM. Should you require extra support, we also offer live chat and phone support options for a small monthly fee. Our professional services team also offers extended training hours if you ever need one-on-one consulting.
Neon One Academy
Being a Neon One customer grants you exclusive access to Neon One Academy, a vast collection of learning modules focused on product orientation, in-depth CRM courses, and bite-sized reference articles and videos. Whether you’re looking for a detailed course to familiarize yourself with a new feature or simply need a quick refresher on building a report, Neon One Academy offers a comprehensive database of options to help you succeed—something Network for Good does not currently offer their customers.
Do you have an idea or feature request that will make our product more valuable? Let us know! You’ll be able to access our Suggestion Portal, where you can submit ideas for new product features and improvements—something Network for Good lacks. Within the Portal, you can explore the list of ideas and suggestions already submitted by other Neon CRM users. You can track the progress of these ideas and contribute by voting for your favorites. Our product team consistently reviews the portal to gain insights and incorporate them into our product roadmap.

Your Questions Answered
Is Revenue-Based Pricing Actually More Cost-Effective?
Most platforms use record-based pricing. This particular pricing structure limits growth as nonprofit organizations hesitate to add new records, fearing an unexpected transition to a higher pricing tier. Our revenue-based pricing model eliminates unforeseen price increases, letting your organization accurately plan your budget. This approach not only eliminates fear but also provides the freedom to grow without constraints.
Do I Really Need All These Bells and Whistles?
While you may not require every feature right away, choosing a provider who does not offer extended features could impede your future potential. Neon CRM lets you use the features that you need now with the option to add more when you’re ready. It can be tempting to go for the most affordable solution, but investing in a tool that lets you grow and scale for years to come can save you the cost of changing platforms in the future.
Aren’t All Data Migrations the Same?
Your organization’s data is the cornerstone of your donor relationships. Instead of mass uploads and generic import scripts, we use a customized approach that begins with conducting a comprehensive data audit, enabling you to avoid expensive enrichment services in the future. With recent improvements made to our data import and migration procedures, you can seamlessly import your data and ensure precise mapping of all fields.
