Leadership Banks

Where You Bank Makes a Difference!

Choose a Leadership Bank to improve access to justice in Connecticut

Leadership Banks pay the highest rates on IOLTA and IOTA balances and generously waive service fees to provide additional funding for civil legal aid in Connecticut. We extend our thanks to these institutions and encourage you to bank with them. By doing so, you directly impact the amount of interest earned for legal aid programs in our state.
