Banking for Justice

By working directly with lawyers and financial institutions across our state to set up designated, interest-bearing accounts, NC IOLTA has awarded more than $100 million to organizations that provide legal aid to individuals, families, and children. With your continued support, and by setting the highest interest rates possible, you are directly increasing access to justice and building strong, equitable communities across North Carolina.
