Ferris State University is launching a new campaign that is aiming to make college more affordable.

It's called Now and Always, and it will allow people to donate directly to student scholarship programs. The goal is to raise $36 million for students, and anyone can give.

The university said a cut in government funding has put a bigger financial burden on students, so every donation helps.
