The More For Your Community program makes direct grants to organizations to jumpstart and/or sustain projects that effectively and directly serve the basic needs of families and children: food, shelter, education, safety and health. Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofits, government-sponsored organizations or school-sponsored organizations and directly serve children and families within 60 miles of a Theisen’s store. A full list of Theisen’s store communities is available at dbqfoundation.org/theisens.
“Serving local communities is at the heart of what we do,” says CEO Chris Theisen. “Each year, we are proud to support organizations providing necessities to keep families and communities strong and healthy.”
Theisen’s has donated $3.4 million through the More For Your Community Grant program since its inception in 2009 and supports many other community events and organizations directly. In 2022, the program distributed $350,000 to organizations serving an estimated 630,000 people from Ames, Iowa, to Black River Falls, Wisconsin.
