Youth Literacy Grants – May 19

Posted by Dollar General on April 26, 2022

Dollar General Literacy Foundation invites applications for youth literacy grants

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 only a third-grade education. A farmer’s son who dropped out of school when his father perished in an accident, Turner started one of America’s most successful companies through determination and hard work.

The foundation invites applications for its Youth Literacy Grants program in keeping with that spirit. Through the program, grants of up to $4,000 will be awarded to schools, public libraries, and nonprofit organizations to support efforts to help students who are reading below grade level or experiencing difficulty reading.

The program supports the implementation or expansion of new or existing literacy programs, the purchase of new technology or equipment to support literacy initiatives, and/or the purchase of books, materials, or software for literacy programs.

For complete program guidelines, a list of 2021 grant recipients, and application instructions, see the Dollar General Literacy Foundation website.

Deadline: May 19, 2022 10:00 p.m. CT
