Applications available for Theisen’s More for Your Community Grants
Theisen’s Home•Farm•Auto is proud to announce the launch of the 2017 Theisen’s More for Your Community Grants program.
Supported by Theisen’s charitable fund and through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, grants will be made available in all Theisen’s store communities. This year, more than $250K in total grants will be distributed to the region served by Theisen’s, with each store having at least $5,000 available. The maximum request per project application is $5,000. Applications are currently available at www.dbqfoundation.org/theisens and directions to access the application are also available at each store. The deadline to apply is August 15.
The More for Your Community Program will make direct grants to agencies to jumpstart and/or sustain projects that most effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children, which include food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofits, government-sponsored, or school-sponsored organizations and directly serving children and families within a 60-mile radius of a Theisen’s store.
Theisen’s Home Farm Auto has donated nearly $1.5 million through the More For Your Community Grant program since its inception, and supports many other community events and organizations directly. Company President Jim Theisen said, “Theisen’s is proud to begin our ninth year of More for Your Community Grants. Our Theisen’s team encourages the important work being accomplished by the volunteers and leaders who serve children and families in our store communities. We invite nonprofit groups to complete an application online and tell us by August 15, 2017, how we can help.”
