Ways to get funding as an Editor?

Hey SP,
I'm 18 years-old and I'm an editor and hope to carry on along this path in my future. I've got an old Mac's from 2008/2009 that is a fat tower block, it has seen its days so it runs incredibly slow making my role as an editor even harder to achieve (in my most recent project, to edit a 1 minute trailer I had to edit most of it blind as the computer couldn't keep up with the simple tasks of just cutting footage to place on a timeline). I've beem trying to save up for a new Mac for about 2 years, but I have no luck as any money I save I end up giving to my mum to help her pay for my family, she's disabled so cannot work and PIP is a confusing situation that I'm not going to go on about. Anyway I try my best to save up, using a college bursary, birthday money etc but I help my mum instead.
Anyway I'm really wanting to progress as an editor, it's the one thing I want to do and I'm really passionate about filmmaking. I'm wanting to improve my skills and be able to take on more work but my computer can't handle it. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any ways for me to get funding or ways to raise money? Enough to get a second hand Mac or something.

Please can you guys help me with this as I'm sure you understand what it's like to really want to do something but not having a chance to do it. Thanks everyone, I look forward to receiving your help!
