Before we get started

Spark is a lightweight hosted version of CiviCRM that offers you quick setup, zero administration, and most of the power of CiviCRM with some limitations. It is built and intended for small to medium-sized organizations that are dipping their toes into the CRM space for the first time. It also represents a starting point into the larger CiviCRM ecosystem. Welcome aboard!
  • Consolidate your spreadsheets and begin using a CRM built for nonprofits
  • Grow you skills and leverage complex features within Spark
  • Increase your impact and achieve your operational goals
  • Seamlessly graduate off of Spark and onto the full version of CiviCRM

Sound good? Let's explore Spark!

Spark offers an enormous amount of functionality at a ridiculously low price. As cool as that sounds, it's equally important to understand what Spark isn't.
  • Not a replacement for the full download version of CiviCRM
  • Not a replacement for CiviCRM support provided by the community or by providers
  • Not open to complex customizations unique to your organization

Take payments through Spark

At its heart, CiviCRM Spark is a 'constituent relationship management' (CRM) system. What sets it apart from other systems its ability to take payments via range of payment processors without any additional costs, save for those associated with the payment processor. That's right... no additional percentage points or per fee transactions when taking payments through Spark.

Take payments online via credit card, ACH, SEPA, or transfer. Simple, flexible and powerful.

We include and recommend some of the best processors in the business...

Full disclosure, because that's how we roll: the payment processors we recommend all financially support CiviCRM through revenue share agreements. These in no way inflate transaction fees for you. They do, however, support the ongoing development and maintenance of CiviCRM.

Clear, simple pricing

Spark offers the most straightforward pricing possible. No hidden costs, additional licenses, expansion packs, or per transaction fees. Just one simple montly price.

Community Support

CiviCRM is powered by an amazing community of software developers and nonprofit professionals, many of which actively provide support through various community channels. Whether you're a first time user or verteran of CiviCRM, community support is a great way to engage with the community and get support.

What are Spark's limitations?

Spark is a great starting point for many organizations new to a CRM system. And, what's more, is that Spark provides easy transition to the full version of CiviCRM. So, what makes Spark less than the full version?

  • Spark includes up to 5,000 contacts and 10,000 emails sent per month. With CiviCRM (the full download), you have unlimited contacts and email capabilities.
  • Spark does not provide you a website CMS. You'll need to manage that on your own. The download version of CiviCRM integrates with BackDrop, Drupal, Joomla! and WordPress.
  • Spark does not support any and all CiviCRM extensions.
  • Spark does not include any paid support from CiviCRM LLC.
Can we migrate off of Spark?

Yes, absolutely! In fact, we hope that you do. Spark is a great starting point into the larger CiviCRM ecosystem. Our objective in offering Spark, in fact, is to allow organizations access to CiviCRM's basic functionality. After having mastered it, we encourage organizations to adopt the full version of CiviCRM and really begin to flex their CRM muscles!

And, of course, your data is your data. You are free to export it at any time. Likewise, we can assist you if you do opt to upgrade to the full version of CiviCRM.

Can we get a refund if we cancel?
If you try Spark and cancel within the first 30 days, we'll gladly refund your payment. After 30 days, we do not provide refunds. Do keep in mind that you can cancel any time by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Can we use our own website with Spark?
Yes, absolutely! Spark does not lock you into any one particular website platform. You're free to use your current website, develop a new one, or not use one at all!
Does Spark provide access to a CMS?
No, Spark does not include access to a website content management system.

Mobile Apps Available

Like the full download version of CiviCRM, Spark benefits from native Android and iOS apps that can put much of the power of the CRM on your mobile devices. The apps listed here are developed by third party developers and not by CiviCRM LLC. Capabilities vary between apps.
