FVCC looks to raise money with new license plate


KALISPELL, Mont. - Flathead Valley Community College has unveiled a new license plate design to commemorate the college's 50th anniversary.

Each license plate purchased raises money for the school's scholarship fund.

The new license plate costs $40 and $30 goes directly to the school. Each year the license plate is renewed, all of the money returns to the college to benefit the scholarship fund.

It is another fundraiser to help make college more affordable for students.

"We have a large percentage of our students who are on financial aid and have a need and we want to keep the debt down for our students so this really does help a lot," says executive director of institutional advancement, Colleen Unterreiner.

In the 2015, fiscal year the license plate sales helped raise just under $1000 for the college.

The new license plate is available through the Montana Department of Justice Motor Vehicle Division.
