Dollar General Literacy Foundation Invites Applications for Adult Literacy Programs

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation was established in 1993 in honor of Dollar General’s co-founder, J.L. Turner, who was functionally illiterate and had dropped out of school after third grade when his father was killed in an accident. With determination and hard work, he began what is now a successful company.

With the aim of helping others who may struggle with literacy, the foundation welcomes applications for its Adult Literacy Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded 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.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization as determined by the IRS; a public library, school, or college providing direct literacy services in a state in which Dollar General Corporation operates; and be within located fifteen miles of a Dollar General store.

See the Dollar General Literacy Foundation website for complete program guidelines, a list of 2019 grant recipients, and application instructions.

Deadline: February 20, 2020
