Tufts University’s Advancement group found that two-thirds of the visitors to its online giving form abandoned the page before completing a donation. Although online donations were steady and significant, they knew they needed to improve the form’s usability to encourage donors to pledge money.
We interviewed a cross-section of representative donors, asking open-ended questions to identify patterns of use and watching them interact with the form to determine barriers to making a donation. Based on these interviews, we illustrated and documented recommendations for improvements to the form. A second round of testing, this time on the redesigned form, confirmed that donors found the new interface easier to use.
