Dollar General Literacy Foundation Grants and Programs

Description: The Dollar General Literacy Foundation was established in 1993 in honor of Dollar General's co-founder, J.L. Turner, who was functionally illiterate with only a third grade education. He was a farmer's son who dropped out of school when his father was killed in an accident. With determination and hard work, he began what has now become a successful company. Since 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation has awarded more than $127 million in grants to nonprofit organizations and schools that have helped more than 7.9 million individuals learn to read, prepare for the high school equivalency test, or learn the English language. THE GRANTS: Dollar General Literacy Foundation has five programs to assist with improving literacy - Adult Literacy Grants; Beyond Words; Family Literacy Grants; Summer Reading Grants and Youth Literacy Grants.
