Theisen's Awards $300,000 to Serve the Basic Needs of Children & Families





Theisen’s Home • Farm • Auto announces that 177 nonprofits in 23 Theisen’s store communities will receive more than $300,000 in grant awards through the company’s 2016 More for Your Community grants program. The full list of 2016 grant recipients is available online at www.dbqfoundation.org/theisens.

Now in its eighth year, the Theisen’s More for Your Community grant program has given away $1,452,613 to support local nonprofit organizations and the people they serve.

“With this year’s grants of $303,000, we are simply giving back to our community and the people we serve,” said President Jim Theisen. “We are so proud to support these nonprofit organizations as they provide food, shelter, healthcare, safety and education to children and families in and near to our store communities.”

The donors who support this grant program, which include Jim and his sons Chris and Tony, take active roles in evaluating each year’s many applications. They also make annual site visits to nonprofit grantees to learn about community needs and to meet the nonprofit leaders serving our children and families.

Nonprofits will receive their grant checks at More for Your Community grants celebrations hosted by local stores throughout Iowa and Wisconsin on Monday, November 14.

The Theisen’s More for Your Community corporate giving program is a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque (CFGD). CFGD President and CEO Nancy Van Milligen said, “The Foundation is proud to provide efficient and effective grantmaking support to these generous corporate leaders as they give back to their communities.”

Successful grant applications included evidence of project dollars directly reaching children, strong local matches, and opportunities for those served to give back to the community.

Theisen's Home*Farm*Auto awards nearly $50,000 in grants to Davenport area nonprofits




Davenport, Iowa— Theisen’s Home?Farm?Auto, a family-owned, leading Midwest retailer, will be opening its 23rd store in Davenport Iowa. To serve the community and as part of our commitment to the communities we serve, Theisen’s is awarding nearly $50,000 in Theisen’s More for Your Community Grants to 23 area nonprofits during the new store’s ribbon cutting. These grants are part of more than $300,000 that the company will distribute to nonprofits throughout Iowa and Wisconsin through the 2016 Theisen’s More for Your Community grant program.

Theisen’s Home?Farm?Auto has donated more than $1.2 million in More for Your Community grants since the program’s inception in 2009. Above and beyond this amount, the company directly supports many other community events and organizations throughout Iowa and Wisconsin. The grant program is supported by the Theisen’s charitable fund through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. Support from the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend helped facilitate the process.

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, including food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants were required to be 501(c)(3) nonprofits, government-sponsored, or school-sponsored organizations and directly serving children and families within a 60-mile location of the Theisen’s Davenport location.

“Giving back to those in need was shown to me by my parents more than 60 years ago. We continue giving back today as a company (and personally) because supporting our store communities is the right thing to do. They support us and we support them.” said Jim Theisen, Co-Owner and Board Chair Emeritus.

The full list of 2016 Davenport grant recipients is available online at www.dbqfoundation.org/theisens. Theisen’s will announce the remaining grants for communities throughout Iowa and Wisconsin on November 14.
