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 aneasy 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. With the full download version, you can install, use and develop whatever extensions you want.
  • Spark does not include any paid support from CiviCRM LLC. But, then neither does the full download version.

Spark is backed by CiviCRM LLC, the entity that develops and maintains the open source software CiviCRM. CiviCRM LLC is a California-based LLC that is focused on delivering the very best opensource CRM to nonprofits around the world. We aspire to make a meaningful difference in the world for those with which we’re lucky to work. We value and promote:
