More For Your Community
Theisen’s “More for Your Community” Program makes 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 be directly serving children and families within a 60-mile radius of a Theisen’s store.
Supported by Theisen’s charitable fund and through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, Theisen’s Home Farm Auto offers grants in all 24 Theisen’s store communities. Last year, over $300,000 in total grants were 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. Each year, grant applications are taken between May 1 and August 15th, with award announcements going out in November.
