Banks who Peak their Interest

The Campaign for Justice gratefully acknowledges the special financial institutions that already go beyond what the statute requires to support the IOLTA Program and its contribution to legal services. The support and commitment of these banks ensures the success of the IOLTA program and increases funding for legal aid.

The institutions below “Peak their Interest” by paying, 1) the Leadership Bank rate of one percent and waive monthly service fees, or 2) the Established Compliance Rate of .68 percent of the federal funds target rate, or .68 percent, whichever is higher, and waive monthly service fees.
