NH Bar Foundation: IOLTA Leadership Bank Spotlight - Meredith Village Savings Bank

The New Hampshire Bar Foundation, on behalf of the NH legal community, thanks Meredith Village Savings Bank for its steadfast support of the Interest on Lawyers Trust Account program, and its participation as a Leadership Bank in 2011.
A Leadership Bank…

Contributes to the success of the IOLTA program by offering interest rates of 2% or more on IOLTA accounts.

Meredith Village Savings Bank’s Impact

With the revenue earned through the IOLTA Program, Meredith Village Savings Bank helped more than 19,000 residents receive critical civil legal services in the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011. These services alleviate poverty and suffering and help the communities it serves in central and southern New Hampshire.
