Despite the challenges brought on with the various lockdowns and the impact of COVID-19 on Face-to-Face acquisitions, the overall SG Support-managed donor bases in Malaysia managed to grow. Benefitting from a historically continuous low attrition rate, our Malaysian charity partners were also quick and united in their approach to the challenges brought on by COVID-19. These factors combined allowed for a cushioning of the COVID-19 impact, ultimately allowing for the growth across the overall donor bases managed by SG Support in Malaysia.

As we move into 2021, Malaysian non-profits would need to look at acquisition-focused methods to continue growth/fundraising expectations.



  • Resilience of donor retention practices as evidenced with continued low attrition rates.
  • Quick redeployment of Face-to-Face fundraising with safety protocols in place, when conditions allowed.
  • Approval rates have held steady throughout the lockdown period.


  • Driving alternative acquisition channels to supplement reduced acquisition volumes from Face-to-Face (value over volume).
  • Macroeconomic factors beyond our control could alter donor performance.
  • Acquisition of donors with the preferential payment type.

With acquisition rebounding strongly after the first MCO, this allows for an in-depth contingency plan to account for possible future MCOs of varying degrees.
