Based on her SOCE, she declared zero personal spending whereas TV host-actress Kris Aquino was her top campaign donor with a total contribution of P30.8 million. While another Aquino, Victoria "Viel" Aquino Dee contributed P1 million.

She was also confident that her party, LP will file its SOCE before she assumes office on June 30. Admitting that if they fail to do so before the said date, it will hinder Leni Robredo from taking her office as vice president.
