Michigan began issuing the patriotic license plate October 15, 2001. The red-white-and-blue license plate featuring an American flag flying over a dark blue silhouette of Michigan, boldly displaying the phrase "Proud To Be American", benefits the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
Fundraising plates can only be used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans, and motor homes. Motorcycles and trailers are not eligible for these plates.
You can order the fundraising license plates online, by mail, or at any Secretary of State branch office. The plate will be mailed to you within 14 business days from the date the plate is ordered.
To purchase a plate by mail, complete and print the Patriotic License Plate Order Form.
