OLAF Call for Prime Partners
Financial institutions now have the chance to showcase positive contributions to their communities through the Prime Partners Program, a partnership with financial institutions being launched today by the Ohio Legal Assistance Foundation. The program will recognize institutions that are leaders in the effort to ensure equal access to justice for all Ohioans.
Financial institutions offering IOLTA and IOTA accounts, lawyer and title agent trust accounts, will submit an application to the Foundation detailing charitable giving, employee involvement, and corporate support for Ohio’s legal aid programs, along with more detailed information about institutional support for IOLTA and IOTA products. Applications are due by March 30.
Institutions meeting the program’s criteria will be placed on the Prime Partner Program’s Honor Roll, and the top ten percent will earn the designation of “Prime Partner.” Honor Roll and Prime Partner institutions will be promoted by the Foundation in a variety of public venues for the remainder of 2012.
The inaugural class of Prime Partner Program financial institutions will be announced in mid-April. More information on the program is available by visiting the Prime Partners Program page on the Foundation’s website.
