Final Year Funding with Future Pledge

Final Year Funding with Future Pledge

Personal message

My name is Blake Springate and I am completing my 4-year undergraduate degree in Finance and Accounting at the University of Cape Town.  I am studying towards obtaining the CA (SA) qualification, whilst also living with and trying to suppress a brain tumour.

I have received financial assistance for my first 3 years but have been unable to secure funding for my fourth and final year. My parents have helped where they can whilst I was sponsored during my first three years, however, this financial pressure has become far too much of a burden to them during this time. Since I have no funding for this year, I need to take responsibility for my own education, and I am left seeking funds from other sources.

This situation has placed tremendous amounts of stress in my life, especially with the risk of exclusion from the university due to unpaid tuition fees which would ultimately leave me without a degree. However, I am positive that the funds will be raised and that I will be privileged enough to complete my degree.

Funds raised will help cover:

Tuition Subtotal: R71,880.00

Accommodation: R61,100.00

Books, Stationery and educational equipment: R11,500.00

Additional Living Expenses: R5,520.00

TOTAL R150,000.00


All donations, small or big, would be hugely appreciated. If you cannot donate, please help by sharing this with your family and friends through various social media platforms. If you have any questions or would like to get in touch, please contact me via email ([email protected]).

Should my campaign be successful, I pledge to donate my first salary to education campaigns on Backabuddy.

Many thanks in advance.

*Funds raised for studies will be paid directly to the University of Cape Town*
