Posted June 14, 2023 by Hunter Williams

virtual assistants for LGL accounts

We’re happy to share a new resource that can help Little Green Light customers make the most of using their LGL database: Utilizing a nonprofit virtual assistant!

You may be familiar with the LGL Consultant Network, now in its ninth year of operation, where you can find and hire experts to take on thorny or time-consuming projects like getting your data migrated into LGL or piecing together the mapping for a complex event registration form. But until now we did not offer a solution for customers who wanted ongoing back-office support to keep their LGL accounts  in tiptop shape day-to-day.

Today, we’re excited to introduce a partnership with The More Than Giving Company, which offers exactly that type of service to our customers.

More Than Giving’s Nonprofit Virtual Assistants (NPVA) provide nonprofit organizations with expert back-office support in a scalable way. Every NPVA completes:

Engagements with NPVAs typically amount to between 10 and 40 hours per month and don’t require any long-term commitments.

And, Little Green Light customers receive a 10% discount on their initial engagement with More Than Giving, for up to 12 months!

Here are six ways nonprofit virtual assistants can help LGL customers:

Way #1: Help you maintain your donor data

An NPVA can ensure that all donor information is entered correctly and kept up-to-date, which will help you build stronger relationships with your donors and lead to increased giving.

Way #2: Manage your constituent communications

An NPVA can create and send personalized emails, newsletters, and other forms of communication to your donors. This can help keep donors engaged and informed about your nonprofit’s latest activities, events, and campaigns.

Way #3: Manage your organization’s membership program

An NPVA can enter new members into the database and ensure that all member information is up-to-date. Additionally, a nonprofit virtual assistant can help you create forms for events and membership applications, which can make the membership process more efficient and streamlined.

Way #4: Enter donations and send acknowledgments

An NPVA can assist with gift entry and creating acknowledgment letters or emails. This can help ensure that all donors receive a timely thank-you note for their gift, improving donor retention and increasing the likelihood of repeat giving.

Way #5: Run donor reports

An NPVA can generate donor reports in Little Green Light, such as year-over-year comparisons, which can provide valuable insights to identify trends and patterns as well as inform your fundraising strategy.

Way #6: Assist with setting up integrations

An NPVA can help you set up and manage basic integrations with such software as Mailchimp or PayPal, so you don’t have to worry about the technical details.

By handling administrative tasks and providing valuable insights into your donor data, a nonprofit virtual assistant can help your organization save time and improve your fundraising efforts. More Than Giving allows your nonprofit to secure the precise amount of administrative support you need right now, and to adjust that support up or down over time, starting with just 10 hours per month.
