Dollar General Literacy Foundation invites applications for family 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, JL. Turner, who was a farmer’s son with only a third-grade education, is proud to continue his legacy by supporting students along their educational journey.

To that end, the foundation invites applications for its Family Literacy Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to support organizations that support the whole family in literacy in one of the following areas: adult education instruction, children’s education, or Parent and Child Together Time (PACT).

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

For complete program guidelines, a list of 2022 grant recipients, and application instructions, see the Dollar General Literacy Foundation website.

Deadline: February 16, 2023 at 10:00 p.m. CT
