National Parkinson Foundation

Project Description

National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) is dedicated to making life better for people with Parkinson’s disease by providing expert care and research. To date, they’ve funded over $189 million in crucial research and support services, including groundbreaking clinical studies. Knowing we had a responsibility to help them preserve this momentum, our redesign focused on maximizing donor pathways and streamlining NPF’s online fundraising. Their new, reorganized and fully responsive site is easier  to navigate, and it’s equipped with a “tabbed” donation form so that NPF donors more ability than ever before to support these life-changing programs.
