OUR MISSION

The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation works with civil legal aid organizations in Wisconsin to increase access to justice. We oversee funds and invest in services and projects to help people resolve legal problems.

IOLTA participating financial institutions

The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation, Inc. (WisTAF) works closely with financial institutions to verify their status as “IOLTA participating financial institutions” in the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) Program and assist in aligning with the rule governing IOLTA accounts.

Per Wisconsin Supreme Court Rule 20:1.15, an IOLTA account must be held at a financial institution that pays interest rates on IOLTA accounts that are at least as high as the rates they pay to non-IOLTA customers holding accounts meeting the same minimum balance and other requirements.   

Any financial institution or attorney with questions is encouraged to contact IOLTA Program Manager, Tehmina Islam, at (608) 257-6845 or toll free at (877) 749-5045 or email tislam@wistaf.org.
