The front page is clean, informative and chalk-full of calls to action: Donate, Get Involved, Join, Learn. Also easily organized for those looking as Public, Parents, Programs or Professionals.  Everything your visitor needs to know is directly above the fold and while simple and clean isn’t lacking with information or direction.

The have implemented the ‘scroll’ landing page which enables them to share as much information as they can before the visitor clicks off. A very popular and effective strategy – the longer a visitor is on your page the more likely the click-through will occur.

In addition to this, they yet again added clear calls to action: Learn, Drive Change, Join the Cause.  They give their visitors multiple opportunities to provide their email address or join them on their social media.  Perfect!  the more engaged the better!
