Secretary of State
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.
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 Patriotic License Plate Order Form.
