The award was given to UBA for its contribution of $350,000, equivalent to GH¢1,925,000, to the Ghana COVID-19 Trust Fund set up by the President in 2020.

Apart from the monetary donation, UBA also provided relief to creditors and reduced interest rates, with the support of the Bank of Ghana. Additionally, the bank rescheduled payments to borrowers that were badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
