About the Martha’s Vineyard License Plate Program:
The Martha’s Vineyard License Plate program benefits Martha’s Vineyard Community Services (MVCS) and Island non-profits. The program has generated more than $300,000 in revenue. Revenue generated from the program is used for funding the vital programs and a range of support services provided by MVCS.
In keeping with the agency’s community-minded spirit, MVCS donates 20% of annual net proceeds to other Island non-profits through the MVCS Driving the Future Charitable Fund, a collaborative effort between MVCS and the Permanent Endowment for Martha’s Vineyard. Grants from this fund are used to support education and health and human services for youth and seniors on Martha’s Vineyard.
