The 2014 Theisen’s More for Your Community Grants are due Aug. 31.

This year, a record $200,000 in total grants will be distributed to the region served by Theisen’s Home•Farm•Auto, 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 that most effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children, which include food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be 501(c)(3), nonprofit, government-sponsored or school-sponsored organizations that directly serve children and families within a 60-mile radius of a Theisen’s store.

The online application process is open now at www.dbqfoundation.org/Theisens.  Directions to access the online site are also available at the checkouts at each store.

“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,” Theisen’s President Jim Theisen said.
