  Abstract With the growth of social media and crowdsourcing in disaster response, further research is needed on the motivations

and contributions of digital volunteers. This study applies a user-centered design approach to understanding how we

might make better tools to support digital volunteers. This user-centered design approach involves stated preference

elicitation methods through an online survey to understand what digital volunteers want in such tools. Through

choice-based conjoint analysis, we contribute to mixed-methods research to gain additional insight into motivations

and user preferences for a set of design features that might be incorporated into an online tool specifically for digital

volunteers. Initial results show preferences for measures of success that were not monetary, which aligned with

directly stated motivations for volunteering. Our findings corroborate with previous research in that feedback to

volunteers is very important, as well as being able to measure the impact of their work.
