Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET)

The Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET or the Trust) is a grantmaking organization that supports activities that advance conservation and understanding of marine animals and restoration of critical ecological systems in the Commonwealth.

The Trust does not use any tax dollars to operate. It is entirely funded by the 30,000+ Bay State citizens who purchase and renew one of the Trust’s three environmentally-themed license plates issued by the Registry of Motor Vehicles – the Right Whale Tail, Leaping Brook Trout, and Blackstone Valley Mill. These are the only specialty plates sold in Massachusetts that exclusively fund environmental programs.
