Dollar General Literacy Foundation invites applications for adult literacy programs

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation was established in 1993 by Cal Turner and Cal Turner Jr. to honor Dollar General’s co-founder, J.L. Turner, who was a farmer’s son with only a third-grade education and who never learned to read. The foundation is proud to continue its legacy by supporting students along their educational journey.

The foundation invites applications for its Adult Literacy Grants program, which will award grants of up to $10,000 to organizations that provide direct services to adults in need of literacy assistance in one of the following areas: adult basic education, GED or high school equivalency preparation, and English language acquisition.

Applicants must be a nonprofit organization as determined by the IRS; a public library, school, or college providing direct literacy services in a state where Dollar General Corporation operates; and within 15 miles of a Dollar General store.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Dollar General Literacy Foundation website.

Deadline: February 15, 2024 at 10:00 p.m. CT
