Beyond Whether to Give: Using Continuous Requests to Increase Donation Rates

Across five incentive-compatible studies (N=4314), we demonstrate that donation requests with continuous choice options (options presented on the same continuum, e.g., $5/$10/$15 amounts) increase donation rates relative to binary choice options (yes/no), because with continuous requests, the option not to donate becomes the stingiest option, thereby increasing donation rates.
