September 2013 is the 10th Anniversary of the Registry of Motor Vehicles Special Plate program, established by the legislature as an opportunity for charitable organizations to raise funds through a dedicated license plate.

In recognition of the anniversary, the MassDOT blog is sharing the story of some of the nearly 20 special plates.

To sign up for a special license plate today, please visit www.MassRMV.com

This charity plate costs $40. Under state charity plate guidelines, $28 of the purchase price will be distributed to the two nonprofit charities. The remaining $12 is retained by the state of Massachusetts to cover the one-time-only cost of manufacturing the charity plate.
