About the License Plate
Every purchase of the Indiana Arts Trust license plate makes an investment in the Indiana Cultural Trust Fund, a long-term endowment that sustains the arts for future generations of Hoosiers. (Note: The plate costs an annual $40, of which $25 for the Arts Trust may be considered a tax deductible contribution. Please check with your tax adviser for specifics.)
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.
