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.
