Where IOLTA Money Goes

Read reports from last year's IOLTA grantees about what impact these grants had on their work to enhance access to justice for NH's vulnerable citizens.

In the current year, more than $960,000 was granted for civil legal services programs. 2015 IOLTA grant awards.

Make Your IOLTA Dollars Count More

It really makes a difference where you have your IOLTA account! Your IOLTA deposits earn substantially more if you use one of the Leadership Level financial institutions that support the New Hampshire Bar Foundation's mission by paying 2 percent or more on IOLTA deposits.

Now, financial institutions paying at least 1 percent also are being specially recognized as Partner Level financial institutions. Find out more about Leadership and Partner Level financial institutions.

IOLTA has generated $30 million for civil legal services and public education over its 30-year history. Find out more about IOLTA.
