What vehicles qualify for a Driven to Cure license plate?
Applicants must be Kansas residents who own passenger vehicles or light trucks that are registered for weight of 20,000 lbs. or less.
When should I purchase a plate?
You may purchase a Driven to Cure license plate at any time. However, to avoid paying a contribution twice in one year, the best time to purchase a plate is during your annual tag renewal process. If you are within 6 months from your scheduled license plate renewal month, the required contribution will be prorated to $25 for the partial year. In this situation, you MUST obtain a contribution fee payment certificate from KU Endowment in advance and you MUST present the certificate to the county treasurer when purchasing your plate. To take advantage of prorated fees, please contact DeNean Jones at email@example.com or 888-588-5249. Prorated plates are not available on our online form.
Can I request a special name or number?
The Kansas legislation authorizing distinctive plates does not provide for personalization of tags with words or phrases. Tag numbers are randomly issued.
What is the renewal schedule?
Kansans renew their license plates during certain months that are assigned according to the first letter of last names. However, you may register for a new Driven to Cure license plate at any time during the calendar year.
How do I transfer my license plate to another vehicle?
If you purchase or lease a different vehicle, in most cases your Driven to Cure license plate may be transferred to your new vehicle. Transfers are handled directly at your county treasurer’s office; however if you paid your contribution directly to KU Endowment an updated certificate will be required for transfer. Please contact DeNean Jones, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-588-5249 for more information.
Can I purchase a license plate for someone else as a gift?
Yes. Please contact DeNean Jones, at email@example.com or 888-588-5249 for more information.
When will I receive a receipt for my license plate contribution?
Your license plate donation is 100% tax-deductible as a charitable contribution. KU Endowment will send you a charitable receipt acknowledging your gift when we receive notification of your purchase or renewal.
How do you use my license plate contribution?
Purchasing a Kansas Breast Cancer Research and Outreach license plate will remind women and men to take charge of their health through early detection breast cancer exams.
Your annual $50 tax-deductible gift, paid to the University of Kansas Cancer Center, will support the statewide medical coordinator for the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA). The coordinator works to ensure that patients in communities across Kansas have access to the latest information on cancer prevention, early detection and treatment.
