IAC > About the Commission > Arts Trust License Plate Arts Trust License Plate

The arts cultivate imagination, creativity and innovation – key skills for our children to have in the 21st century.

Support arts education programs by purchasing an Arts Trust license plate. Every purchased or renewed plate costs $40 which then generates $25 for the Indiana Cultural Trust Fund, which helps provide additional support for arts education programs in Indiana.

Arts Trust license plates are available at any branch office of the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and can also be ordered online. There is no special application or authorization form needed to obtain an Arts Trust license plate, and they are available to all Hoosier motorists. 

About the Cultural Trust Fund

The Cultural Trust Fund was created through legislative action in 1997, establishing a vehicle with which the Indiana Arts Commission can enhance the funding, encouraging, promoting, and expanding of the arts in Indiana through financial resources outside the agency's biennial budget. The Cultural Trust Fund is a proactive means of ensuring future financial support to Hoosier communities to enhance cultural resources for the benefit of their citizens. Moneys generated through the fund are used to augment, not replace, appropriations from the Indiana General Assembly to the IAC.

Enacting Legislation: House Enrolled Act No. 1358
