Placing a specialty license plate on your car can be a fun way to show off your fandom, interests and past experiences -- hello, veterans and alumni of various colleges. Did you know that specialty plates also raise money for charities in Arizona?

That’s right, for most speciality plates, $17 of the $25 initial application and annual renewal fees goes straight to charity. In fact, last year, the the Veterans, First Responder and Arizona Cardinals plates each generated more than $1 million in revenue.
