Farm License Plates

Ever wonder what the voluntary $10 donation is for when you register for farm tags every year? Some of you may remember that a couple of years ago the donation was automatically written into your total sum for registration. If you were anything like me when you saw this, you just assumed this was a way that the state was trying to take more of your hard-earned money. However, this is definitely not the case. When you voluntarily contribute the $10 donation, that money is split three ways to help Kentuckians and the youth in Kentucky. Each county is given the money they raise from the donations to help three specific groups. The first of the three-way split goes to the Kentucky Proud program which helps Kentucky farmers sell their products. A second way in which the $10 donation helps us is through the local FFA program, and the last group to receive money from donations is the local 4-H Program. In this day and age, times are tough and everyone needs to budget their income. We just wanted to take the time to inform you of what the farm tags donations are used for, and ask that you consider making a donation next time. Thank you!
