NeonCRM Pricing and Fees

How much does NeonCRM cost? Here’s the breakdown — you do the math.

Their ‘Essentials’ package is $99 per month for 1,000 records. It’s a basic package for event management, reporting, and receipting, and it includes no advanced feature sets or additional workflows. This particular package is a basic nonprofit CRM for small nonprofits, but doesn’t include document storage or wealth screening, and isn’t touted as the right package for you if you need online customer support via chat. Their payment processing costs are 2.9% nonprofit rate + $.30 per transaction and +1% for AMEX.

The equivalent Bloomerang package for 1,000 records is $99 a month and includes 10GBs of file storage, plus free robust email and chat support included. We also have wealth screening available through DonorSearch, and no additional cost for essential fundraising or donor database features. You can get our full functionality with no extra cost — and we have you small shops covered, too. Not to mention that our payment processing costs are less than NeonPay. With Moolah and Stripe through Bloomerang you’re looking at 2.49% + $.29 per transaction and 2.2% + $.30 per transaction respectively.
