The support

The Madonna Foundation is proud to salute Union Bank & Trust (UBT) as it celebrates 100 years of helping entrepreneurs, community builders and families with banking, lending, investment and trust services.

“Union Bank & Trust has been a loyal and generous partner of Madonna in every major hospital initiative in our history, as well as a wonderful annual sponsor,” said Suzanne Sughroue, director of Development. Union Bank & Trust is a member of Madonna’s Visionary giving society. This designation is reserved for Madonna donors whose generous gifts are at the highest level of support.  

When Jay Dunlap purchased Union Bank in 1965, there was just one bank location on South 48th Street. Today, UBT is the largest bank in Lincoln, employing more than 800 people in 36 offices in more than 20 communities in Nebraska and the Kansas City metro area. UBT is led by Jay’s daughter, Angie Muhleisen, who is president and CEO. The bank will celebrate its 100th anniversary with special events, special product opportunities and community donations.

Part of the success of UBT over the years has translated into helping support non-profit organizations. 

Annually, UBT provides financial support to more than 200 organizations. Additionally, UBT’s employees are actively involved in leadership and volunteering with their favorite organizations. 

Madonna has been the fortunate recipient of volunteerism and service by a number of UBT’s employees including its president and CEO. Angie served on the Madonna Foundation board of directors from 1993 to 2002, including a three-year term as board chair. She shared her talents with the board of directors Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals from 2004 to 2013 and led the board as chair from 2008 to 2011. 

“Madonna is a place of hope, healing and innovative health care,” Angie said. “Madonna is a true gift to our community and we are proud to support its mission.”           

Congratulations to UBT on its first 100 years. Thank you for partnering with Madonna for the benefit of all those we are privileged to serve. We look forward to Union Bank’s next 100 years.
