License to Thrive!
Celebrate your dedication to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in your daily travels. We recently arranged for the
creation of specialty CHOP license plates exclusively for residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. And every plate helps.
With each purchase, a portion of the proceeds will benefit vital programs in the communities we serve.
How much does a plate cost? How much goes to CHOP?
The plate costs $45. All of the proceeds go to programs that CHOP delivers in surrounding communities through the CHOP
Cares Community Fund. You can even make an additional contribution above $45 - all the extra goes to CHOP.
Effective July 17, 2014, PennDOT is now offering optional personalization of specialty license plates. To personalize a plate, a minimum fee of $150.00 is required (this price point includes the $100.00 cost for specialization in addition to an $11.00 issuance fee and a $39.00 donation to CHOP). In section D of the application, personalized registration plate choices may contain up to five letters or numbers in combination. Only one hyphen or space is permitted, but not both. (If no hyphen or space is requested, one block will remain blank.) No other special characters are available.
You may give as much as you like in excess of the minimum plate price ($45.00 for a CHOP specialty plate or $150.00 for a personalized plate). Your additional donation will benefit CHOP.
*Note: If this application looks different than the one you received in the mail, you may use either - both are still currently accepted by the state. If you would like to personalize your plate, however, please use this version.
