Beginning in February 2012, Commissioner of Agriculture James R. Comer announced all farm license plate voluntary donations would be split evenly among 4-H, FFA and the Kentucky Proud program.
In March, farmers can make a voluntary donation of $10 when renewing their farm license plates at the county clerk’s office. With more than 160,000 farm plates bought or renewed each year in Kentucky, the commissioner’s action could generate up to $1.6 million annually.
“Kentucky 4-H has been given a tremendous opportunity by Commissioner Comer to raise significant funds to support 4-H,” said Keith Rogers, executive director of the Kentucky 4-H Foundation. “The voluntary donations from the Kentucky farm license plate renewals will help Kentucky 4-H give young people around the Commonwealth opportunities that develop leadership, citizenship, and life skills.”
