An anonymous donor who has given nearly $7 million to nine groups and organizations in Milford has also given around $26 million more to 32 entities and charitable organizations in or near Lincoln.

The Lincoln Journal Star says Union Bank & Trust, acting for the donor, is notifying the new recipients. The 32 range in size from Nebraska Wesleyan University down to the village of Douglas, which has 173 residents.

The gifts are stock in Farmers & Merchants Investment Inc., a corporation that has majority ownership in Union Bank & Trust Co.

A bank officer wrote in an email that the donor wanted to show "sincere appreciation to the community of Lincoln, state of Nebraska and all those who have made Union Bank successful over the past 50 years."
