Theisen’s More for Your Community Grant Program Increased to $200K
Theisen’s Home•Farm•Auto is proud to announce the launch of the 2014 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 20 Theisen’s store communities. This year, a record $200,000 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 will make direct grants to agencies to jumpstart and/or sustain projects, which most effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children, which include food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be 501.c3 nonprofit, government-sponsored, or school-sponsored organizations and directly serving children and families within a 60-mile radius of a Theisen’s store. Applications will be completed online again this year and are available now at www.dbqfoundation.org/Theisens. Directions to access the online site are also available at the checkouts at each store.
Company President Jim Theisen said, “As we begin our sixth year of More for Your Community Grants, we are proud to encourage the important work being accomplished by the volunteers and leaders of our area nonprofits. We are honored to partner with those who directly serve children and families in our store communities. This year, we will increase our corporate giving to $200,000. We invite nonprofit groups to complete an application online and tell us by August 31 how we can help them meet these important needs more effectively.”
