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 for free 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.

For accounts on our older pricing plan, LGL also adds its own fee of 1% per transaction, capped at $50/mo.

FAQs

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.

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.

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.

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. (Note that WordPress.com websites do not accept embedded forms at this time; WordPress.org-based sites will work just fine, however.)

How much are donation processing costs?

Fees for donation processing are charged by your selected payment processor (Stripe, PayPal or ProPay.) The costs vary by processor (Stripe charges 2.2% +$0.30 per transaction for approved nonprofits). There are no additional fees charged by LGL for accounts created on or after March 1, 2022, however, accounts created prior to March 1 are charged a 1% fee per transaction (capped at $50/mo.) Older accounts may opt in to the new pricing plan if it benefits them. All accounts will automatically transition to the new pricing plan in March 2023.

Will I be charged sales tax on my Little Green Light subscription and LGL Forms fees?

If your organization is based in a state where we need to collect and remit sales tax, then yes. As of September 2019, this only affects customers in Washington State.
