Revenue generated by the license plates will go on to help Illinois public schools. Every license plate sale and renewal raises $25 for the Professional Sports Teams Education Fund and is designated for the Common School Fund.

We are proud to add the ‘Birds on Bat’ to the plate options for Illinois drivers and hope to see many of them on the road across Illinois."
