Title

DUT & FEENIX Join Forces in Tackling Student Historical Debt

Body

Dear Student 

 

We have some exciting news!

 

Feenix has recently partnered  with DUT’s Advancement and Alumni Relations office and we are excited to announce our partnership in making sure more students are able to graduate debt-free.

 

WHAT IS FEENIX?

 

Feenix is an online fundraising platform for students. The platform was launched in June 2017 as a response to the #FeesMustFall movement that spread across campuses in South Africa during 2015 and 2016. This movement highlighted the extremely high cost of University fees and our need for solutions.

 

This online fundraising platform provides a safe and secure tool for students to raise funds for their outstanding University fees and a channel for individuals and business funders to find students they wish to support.

 

If you’re feeling sceptical- that’s ok. The success of the platform speaks for itself. As of February 2020 over R35 million has been raised and that has gone to assist over 1000 University students with current and historical debt.

 

If you’d like to know more about Feenix please go to www.feenix.org or send us an email on support@feenix.org
