Campaign Aims to Raise Millions for Creative Arts Students

F.A.M Academy and Feenix aim to raise millions in order to fund art students on their creative journey.  Black Coffee, Laduma Nnxokolo and Nelson Makamo, are working to give back to the community that assisted with their creative studies.



Over the years creative art student have struggled with a lack of funding for their studies, but F.A.M Academy is finally here to help

Black Coffee, Laduma Nnxokolo and Nelson Makamo (F.A.M Academy), are partnering with Feenix to create a crowdfunding campaign to assist students in the creative arts faculty.

They aim to raise R3 million in the timespan of two weeks in order to help students for the 2021 academic year.

The trio wishes to create peaceful study opportunities for creative art student and give back, thanking the community for giving them the opportunities when they were in the same position.

There is no specific university that the student needs to attend, rather than being a student in the creative arts faculty.

F.A.M Academy spoken to friend, family and mainly the corporate communities that they were previously involved with help fund creative students. 

People will be able to establish themselves online and on social media, not just forcing themselves to get a job immediately after completing their studies 

Working with Feenix, they plan to fund at least 100 students and hopefully increase the number of students every year.

Laduma says:

We hope to create a blockchain with the campaign and have previously funded students to hopefully help new students.

They created the hashtag #FAMTAGITOUT on social media to promote the crowdfund and encourage people to donate. 

If you are a creative arts student that needs funding the deadline for the bursary closes on the 7th of April so go apply now.
