The largest, locally owned chain of convenience stores, Kwik Stop, has announced they've opened applications for philanthropic partnerships during 2024, effective now.

Since 2002, Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen customers have been a driving force for change in Dubuque and the Tri-States as a whole. Each month, a new organization is selected as the "Kwik Care recipient." For the entire month, customers at those respective businesses can donate to said nonprofit with ease.

Donations can be made easily by requesting your total purchase at any of those businesses (including at the gas pumps at Kwik Stop) be rounded up to the nearest dollar. The additional cents used to round up will be donated to the respective charity of the month.

This month's recipient is Forever Amy, a new nonprofit whose mission is "to help protect and empower survivors of domestic violence and abuse, to create greater awareness, and to encourage collective action from our entire community to end violence and abuse," per their website.

This week, Kwik Stop announced an opportunity for philanthropic partnership during 2024 via their Kwik Care program. Kwik Stop is now accepting applications from local nonprofits for the Kwik Care program in 2024:

We will be reviewing and selecting up to 12 local Greater Dubuque organizations to partner with us throughout 2024. It is always fun learning more about the work of so many great non-profits during the selection process and we look forward to it every year. - Tessa Fahey, Director of Operations for Rainbo Oil, per press release

Over the course of four decades, Kwik Stop has been donating to local non-profits and investing in local sponsorships that make the community stronger.
