LGL Forms

Accept Online Donations with Little Green Light.

Use LGL Forms to Accept Online Donations and Payments
Our powerful form builder tool is included in every subscription.

Among the many features included with a Little Green Light account is our versatile form builder tool, LGL Forms. Information and transactions collected through the forms are automatically synced to your Little Green Light database.

Create unlimited LGL Forms to collect information from members, constituents, and volunteers. Or, integrate forms with a payment processor to start accepting donations right on your website.

…we have been integrating LGL Forms into so many aspects of our work, both external and internal and across the world. We are literally discovering new uses each day for the forms, and it’s been amazing.

FAQs

Can I publish the forms on my website?

Yes. Once you have built and published your form, you can link to it from your website or add a snippet of HTML code on your website to embed it. 

Is it possible to migrate existing recurring donations into Little Green Light?

If you want to migrate existing recurring donations and have Little Green Light (or LGL Forms specifically) manage those instead, that is possible as long as your recurring donations are already being run through a Stripe account. If they are not currently run through Stripe, it may also be possible for you to work with your current processor and Stripe to move them into Stripe first. See this Knowledge Base article for details.

Is support included?

Yes! Our office hours are M-F between 9:00am and 7:00pm EST, and we respond to most questions within an hour (during business hours). In addition to email support, live Q&A webinars hosted by an LGL staff person are held weekly.

Will I be charged sales tax on my Little Green Light subscription?

If your organization is based in a state where we need to collect and remit sales tax, then yes. As of June 2023, this only affects customers in Washington State and Arizona.

How much are donation processing costs?

Fees for donation processing are charged by your selected payment processor (Stripe or PayPal.) The costs vary by processor (Stripe charges 2.2% +$0.30 per transaction for approved nonprofits). 

How can I receive nonprofit rates?

You can qualify for nonprofit rates by sending a copy of your nonprofit (501c3 or 501c4) designation letter along with some basic account information to your selected payment processor.

My nonprofit is based outside the U.S.
Can I use LGL Forms for donation processing?

Yes. If you are a nonprofit based in Canada, New Zealand, or Australia, then you can use LGL Forms with either Stripe or PayPal for payment processing. Learn more about using LGL Forms if you’re based outside the U.S. in our Knowledge Base article. If you are based in a country not included in our list, contact support to see if we can add your country.
