The Big Give FAQ

Will there be follow-up showing how the funds were used at each nonprofit and what impact they had in the community?

Yes, in 2023 we will follow up with each of the 10 recipients to get an update on the impact they were able to make in our community with the funds provided.  

How will we know who has won?

We will be announcing the 10 winners each business day starting on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, through Friday, September 16, 2022. Announcements will be made using our social media platforms, emails sent to voters and Union Bank customers, and they will be listed on our website at

Will voting entries be monitored for duplicates?

Yes, we are using software to help eliminate duplicate voters and other fraudulent voting.

What if I can’t find my voting code?

If your voting code doesn’t arrive in your email inbox within a couple of minutes, we recommend checking your junk folder, your quarantined messages, or other message tabs (like Social or Promotions in Gmail) for the email.

Why did I receive a message that says “You already voted” when I tried to vote for a nonprofit?

If you received this message, it means you have either already voted for a nonprofit in that size category or you have already used all three of your allotted votes (one per category).

Who is eligible to vote?

Any supporter of the Lincoln/Lancaster County community.

How many votes do I get?

Each voter will get a total of three votes: one per category of small, medium, and large, based on the size of the nonprofit’s operating budget.

What does UBT do with the email addresses collected for voting?

Emails entered to cast votes in The Big Give are solely for verification purposes and will not be used for messaging or marketing communications outside of The Big Give. Your privacy is very important to us, so unless you are already receiving marketing communications from us, you will not start receiving them after voting.
