Thanks for your interest in Colorado's new Pollinator License Plate! To register for your new plate you must make a one-time donation (using the form below) on a sliding scale of $25 to $50 (additional donations welcomed!) to People & Pollinators Action Network (PPAN).

Your donation will directly promote the health of native pollinators, increase native pollinator habitat, and fund educational programs that encourage native pollinator biodiversity. 

Instructions for the Application Process:

  • Fill out the online registration form below (information on the form MUST match your vehicle registration, or your assigned PIN # will not work)

    • If you have two names registered for the same vehicle, please write in BOTH names (First Name: Jack and Jill, Last Name: Smith)​

  • Submit your one-time online donation (minimum of $25). Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law as PPAN is a charitable organization, 501(c)3, under the IRS.

  • Online donations are preferred. However, if you would like to send a check, please send it to PPAN, PO Box 355, Niwot, CO 80544-0355. We will then provide a certificate you can take to the Department of Motor Vehicle Office to obtain your plates.
