RJ Thieneman Family Foundation

 Ours is the responsibility to make a difference in the community and leave a lasting legacy.

Over 60 years ago, Robert and Faye Thieneman set out to create a family business that values the role of every employee and builds communities residents are proud of. To continue this mission, the Foundation aims to aid causes with similar values in the greater Louisville community. We will be mindful of our responsibility to the community by proactively seeking new and creative ways to have a long-term impact on projects of importance to the family.


Our Mission
