The focus of this research is to find out how the beggar strategies in getting donations. This paper uses phenomenological design with the perspective of the dramaturgy theory of Erving Goofman. Data collection techniques and tools used are observation and in-depth interviews. While data analysis techniques used are data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing. The results of the study show that there are three strategies that beggars get for donations, namely: a) utilizing both original and artificial physical disabilities, b) using accessories that invite sympathy, and c) selling sadness through language proficiency. This study recommends the community to recognize the beggar strategy and be more selective to contribute to beggars.
