Prime Partner Institutions
Prime Partners go above and beyond to foster the IOLTA Program. Vermont attorneys and law firms can help advance the access to justice cause by establishing and maintaining their IOLTA accounts at a bank or credit union which commits to offering favorable interest rate treatment on IOLTA accounts.
The Vermont Bar Foundation is especially grateful to these institutions for their outstanding commitment to access to justice for under-served Vermonters.

Prime Partners may choose to make a combination of interest rate payments and charitable contributions to meet the annual net yield requirement.
*Institutions will offer IOLTA rates tied to a recognized market indicator less an established number of basis points. For example, a bank or credit union may be tied to the 91-day Treasury bill less 100 basis points.
Thank you, Vermont banks and credit unions, for your continued support.
