Theisen’s Home•Farm•Auto is accepting 2019 Theisen’s More for Your Community Grant applications through July 31. Applications are currently available at and directions to access the application are also available at each store.

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 $350,000 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.

The More for Your Community Program makes direct grants to agencies to jumpstart and/or sustain projects that most effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children: food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofits, government-sponsored organizations or school-sponsored organizations and directly serve children and families within 60 miles of a Theisen’s store.

Theisen’s has donated more than $2.1 million through the More For Your Community Grant program since its inception and supports many other community events and organizations directly.

The Theisen’s More for Your Community Grant Program is made possible through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. To learn more about the grant program and the partnership with the Community Foundation, visit
