Gonzaga University License Plate Program
Oct. 15, 2005
Show your GU pride!
Finally the day has arrived! Gonzaga University license plates will be available to all Washington residents in 2006! Similar to those pesky Cougars and Huskies, the GU license plates will feature the GU Bulldog logo. In addition to showing your bulldog pride, the affinity license plate program also benefits the GU Alumni Scholarship, which awards more than $100,000 to the family members of GU alumni each year. The new plate may be purchased at all vehicle licensing office locations at the opening of business on Tuesday, January 3, 2006.

There is also a special opportunity to obtain one of the first GU plates available! Interested? Read on.
Plate numbers 1 and 2 have been reserved for Gonzaga President, Fr. Robert Spitzer and Chancellor, Fr. Bernard Coughlin respectively. However, license plate numbers 3 to 25 are up for grabs. The Gonzaga Alumni Association will auction off the right to license plate numbers 3-25, with proceeds benefiting the Alumni Association. The highest bidders win plate numbers 3-25, ensuring you will be the envy of everyone on your block. Most universities use this auction as a fun way to promote the new plates and increase support for their alumni associations at the same time. After the 25th license plate number, the computers at the Department of Licensing will randomly chooses all plate numbers. If you would like to bid, simply reply to this e-mail with your opening bid. Please include your name, address, and phone number with your response. The silent auction will close November 15 at midnight; you will then be notified of your winning bid. Good luck and Go Zags!
The winning bidders of the 3-25 plates must each be the registered owner of the vehicle on which the plate will go. Normal vehicle affinity licensing and renewal fees will apply, in addition to your bid and must be paid to the Alumni Association at the end of the silent auction. All plates numbered 3-25 will be purchased at the same time; therefore, if an application is incomplete or the check is not from the registered owner of the vehicle, the application cannot be accepted. A representative of the Alumni Association will go to Olympia to pick up plates 1-25, which will be ready for distribution on January 4, 2006 at the Alumni House. If you have any questions please feel free to call Bob Finn, Alumni Director at (509) 323-6100.
We estimate the value of a low-numbered GU license plate to be $50. If you are a winning bidder, the portion of your bid that exceeds $50 may be tax deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
