PHOENIX, Arizona—Arizona Sportsmen for Wildlife Conservation’s (AZSFWC) “Conserving Wildlife” license plate ended 2017 surpassing the prior year both in license plate sales and more importantly, in grant awards from the proceeds!
Every time someone purchases or renews one of these specialty license plates through the state of Arizona, AZSFWC receives $17 of the $25 cost. These funds are placed in a dedicated account and each quarter AZSFWC assesses grant proposals from qualified organizations.
Last year, 16 different grants were awarded totaling $170,665 in funding. Putting this into perspective, that meant 10,039 Conserving Wildlife license plates were purchased or renewed to fund those projects! Read more here.
