Secretary of State
Michigan began issuing specialty license plates in April 2001 to raise money for several state-supported causes. A red sailboat cuts through Michigan's deep blue waters under a cheery orange sun, bringing the message of the importance of protecting the state's water, our most valuable resource.
Fundraising plates can only be used on passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans, and motor homes. Motorcycles and trailers are not eligible for these plates.
Order your fundraising plate online. It's easy and convenient. Fundraising plates also can be ordered by mail or at a Secretary of State branch office. Your plate should arrive by mail within two-to-three weeks, but allow up to 30 days before contacting the department.
To purchase a plate by mail, complete and print the Water Quality License Plate Order Form.
