SG Support Profile in Hong Kong

Hong Kong's operations started in April 2010, and 2020 marks our 10th anniversary of supporting non-profits in Hong Kong!

At the start of the pandemic, Hong Kong reported low cases of COVID-19, which supported the continuation of fundraising activities in the market. As fundraising in the market continued throughout 2020, with minimal disruption, SG Support's non-profit partners did not see sharp or consistent drops in the recruitment of new donors. Coupled with a steady attrition rate, SG Support's non-profit partners in Hong Kong experienced some growth in 2020 (albeit lower than the originally projected growth pre-COVID-19).

Moving forward, non-profits in Hong Kong would need to look at the start of building alternative acquisition channels to mitigate potential disruptions to Face-to-Face acquisition activities in the future.



  • One of the few SG supported markets that recorded a growth in donor base size in 2020.
  • Face-to-Face acquisition agencies are aplenty in Hong Kong. This allowed non-profits to work with several agencies as their Face-to-Face partners, securing donor acquisition growth.


  • High cost of new alternative acquisition channels makes it difficult to test new strategies.
  • Limited alternative acquisition channels could be set up, which may impact the coming years.
