WisDOT issues new Children’s Hospital specialty license plate

Release date: April 24, 2018

The Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin specialty license plate, featuring their blue children silhouette logo, is now available. The donations collected will go to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation and will fund child-life programs not covered by insurance, needed supplies and equipment to advance ground breaking research, and support the latest medical equipment and tools specific for children.

Anyone may request this or any other specialty plate. The $25 tax-deductible contribution is transferred to the sponsoring organization, which is in addition to the regular registration fee, plus a one-time $15 specialty plates issuance-fee for non-personalized plates. At each annual renewal, plate holders will pay the annual $25 donation and the regular registration fee.

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Foundation was one of the first organizations to apply through the new Authorized Special Group license plate process, which began October 1, 2016 with Wisconsin Act 227. When a group applies for a specialty plate, DMV will make the public aware of the application and invite individuals with objections to the group’s application to fill out an objection form. This form is available on the DMV website at wisconsindmv.gov/specialgroupreview.

To apply for an Authorized Special Group license plate, groups must pay a $15,500 fee for development costs and collect signatures from 500 Wisconsin residents who intend to purchase the special plates. If authorized, the group must maintain 500 valid special plate registrations after three years, or the plates will be discontinued. More on the process is available here.
