With one of the strictest lockdowns across our South East Asian markets, our non-profit partners in the Philippines have had some success in maintaining their overall base. With minimal loss of donors through the lockdown periods, our non-profit partners in the Philippines were decisive in their next steps and those with active Face-to-Face agencies were able to restart the search for new donors faster.

Throughout the course of the year, the attrition rate of donors choosing to stop their donation held stable, which allowed for non-profits to understand the quantum difference required to maintain their donor bases against the backdrop of the pandemic.

Moving into 2021, non-profits in the Philippines would need to consider their short term vs. long term donor base requirements in order to focus efforts.



  • Agility of charities in embracing alternative acquisition channels, such as Telemarketing and Digital.
  • Resilience of the donor bases, as there was no mass exodus of donors via cancellations against the backdrop of the pandemic.
  • Our SG Support client portfolio increased and we welcomed a new partner to our SG Support family.


  • Disruption to contact centre operations at the start of the quarantine, too sudden and very strict rules in place.
  • Economic pressures caused by the pandemic increased the difficulty of acquiring new pledges.
  • Disruption to transaction processing due to banking infrastructure brought on by strict and sudden quarantine.

Moving into 2021, non-profits in the Philippines would need to consider their acquisition goals in terms of short-term vs. long-term gains, whilst making room for further refinement in retention activities.
