Ent Credit Union was recognized for the second consecutive year by The Supreme Court of the State of Colorado at the Colorado Pro Bono Recognition Celebration 2019 in Denver for its “outstanding contribution and service” in providing “Access to Justice” as a Colorado Lawyer Trust Account Foundation (COLTAF) program participant.
Attorneys use COLTAF accounts to hold client funds in trust. The pooled dividends earned help fund legal aid and pro bono programs, including domestic violence and other justice-related efforts to low-income Coloradans.
As a Prime Partner, Ent’s fee-free COLTAF checking account exceeds the basic eligibility requirements by paying “a premium rate of return” on COLTAF deposits: Ent pays a net yield of 75 percent of the Federal Funds Target Rate.
“We’re incredibly honored to receive this recognition. Ent’s participation in COLTAF exemplifies what we, as a credit union, are all about. As a community-minded organization, we’re proud to actively support nonprofit organizations that benefit the communities we serve,” said Paul Kirkbride, Ent’s Director of Business Banking.
Founded in 1957, Ent Credit Union is a different kind of financial institution, committed to improving members’ financial quality of life and returning value through better rates, lower fees and Ent Extras® cash rewards.
