The Scottsdale Charros launched a new fundraising initiative in the in the summer of 2022 to continue their support of Arizona education. The Charros commissioned an official Arizona license plate featuring a gray and black design of the Arizona state flag with “Supporting Arizona Education” as the tagline.
There is a $25 initial application fee and $25 annual renewal fee. The Charros Foundation receives $17 dollars from each plate sold and donates these funds directly to Scottsdale education programs and eventually, as popularity grows, other areas.
You can order at any time – no need to wait for your current tags to expire. Learn more about our “Supporting Arizona Education” license plate and order yours today.
