Appco Singapore and SASCO: a successful fundraising partnership

Appco Singapore is proud to have supported the charity SASCO by acquiring over 24,000 donors and raising more than SGD$24 million for them since 2013.
The fundraisers in Appco’s network sign up committed, regular-giving supporters, whose generous donations have enabled SASCO to diversify its services for the elderly to include rehabilitation, recreation, health monitoring, social outings, health talks and movie screenings while their family members are at work. SASCO has also recently opened their fourth day-care center in Singapore.

The independent fundraising ambassadors contracted through Appco Singapore’s network recently attended a SASCO event for the elderly at Hong San Terrance, where they mingled and chatted with those who receive the charity’s support. It was also a fantastic opportunity for the fundraisers to see and learn more about how their efforts are contributing to the support and care of the elderly community in Singapore.

Hau Zhi Wei, a SASCO independent fundraising ambassador, said: “Every time we visit the elderly, it brightens my day because they are always so welcoming to us with their great big smiles and they treat us like their grandchildren.”
Another fundraiser, Shopana D/O Selvakumaran, added: “It is heartwarming to know that all the funds that we have helped raise for SASCO have brought shelter and support for the elderly. It brought me joy, seeing their genuine smiles and laughter during the event and, although the time spent there was short, it was hard to bid them goodbye.”

Appco Singapore, part of the Appco Group Asia, network acquires thousands of new donors for clients on a daily basis through its network of contracted independent fundraising ambassadors. They engage members of the public in meaningful and positive conversations through various donor acquisition channels, including events, residential, business-to-business, face-to-face fundraising, and street campaigns in Singapore. Appco’s success over almost 30 years is largely due to its insistence on the highest possible standards of integrity and accountability at all times, which ensures that our clients receive committed, long-term, quality donors.
