Feenix is a student programme utilising fundraising to aid students in financing their studies, aiming to prevent them from accumulating debt that could hinder their academic progress. It emphasises community involvement and collaboration to achieve educational goals.

Positioned as a resource for students who may not qualify for traditional bursaries, Feenix serves as a bridge to financial assistance. Established in 2017, Feenix operates as a crowdfunding platform in South Africa, where students can create profiles detailing their financial needs, and donors can contribute funds directly to support their education.

Feenix is available to South African students needing financial assistance for their university fees. Eligible students must be registered at a South African public university and require funding for tuition, accommodation, or other academic-related expenses.

Step-by-Step Guide to Creating a Feenix Profile

Step 1: Sign Up for an Account

To begin, visit the Feenix website and click on the “Sign Up” button on the homepage. You’ll need to provide personal information, including your name, email address, and create a password. After signing up, check your email for a verification link and click on it to activate your account.

Step 2: Create Your Profile

Once logged in, navigate to your account icon or name and select “Profile Settings.” Here, you’ll need to fill out your profile details, including your university, field of study, and a profile picture. Ensure your profile is complete to build trust with potential donors.

Step 3: Start a New Campaign

To create a campaign, click on “Create Campaign” on your dashboard. Enter a title for your campaign and a brief description of your financial needs. Clearly state the amount of money you need and how it will be used.

Step 4: Craft Your Campaign Story

Write a detailed and compelling story explaining why you need the funds and how they will help you achieve your educational goals. Upload a clear photo of yourself and any other relevant images to personalise your campaign. Break down the specific costs you need covered, such as tuition, books, or accommodation.

Step 5: Set Up Payment Options

Provide your banking details to link your bank account, ensuring you can receive the funds once your campaign is successful.

Step 6: Preview and Launch Your Campaign

Before launching, preview all the details to ensure accuracy and completeness. Edit any part of your campaign if needed, then click the “Launch” button to make your campaign live.

Step 7: Promote Your Campaign

Share your campaign on social media platforms and via email to inform friends, family, and contacts about your campaign and request their support. Engage with donors by regularly updating your campaign page and responding to any questions or comments from potential donors.
