Film school funds Campaign

Hi! My name is Phillip Smith. I'm a missionary kid who lives in South Africa, but my heart is in all the different countries I've visited throughout my life. I'm fundraising for my college tuition fees.
I want to be able to make a difference through visual storytelling in this challenging industry.

My goal is to find sponsors who will commit to helping me pay for my annual college fees at Biola university in Los Angeles, CA. I have a great love for cinema and my dream is to be able to dive deeper into cinematography as a career. My application will be a part of the fall intake in August of this year (2024). The only challenge is that I can't have my application considered by the university unless I show them an affidavit of support proving that I'm capable of paying for college.

In the affidavit, I need to show them a minimum of $35,000 per year that someone will commit to paying towards to the total amount ($60,000 p.a.). As an international student, I'm required to present this affidavit in order for me to find out whether or not they will accept my application. The reason the amount on the fundraiser is $42,000 is because Biola already gives me a $18,000 scholarship because of my GPA.

The presented amount on this fundraiser is the required amount for the annual funds that I will need in order to pay for this 4 year program. I appreciate any form of support and I believe that praying and asking for help is the best thing that I can do in order to get things rolling.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter! I appreciate any form of contribution (and continuous prayer).
