Funding opportunity

Dollar General Literacy Foundation
Youth Literacy Grants

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation provides grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations in the forty states where Dollar General stores are located. The foundation’s Youth Literacy Grants provide funding to schools, public libraries, and nonprofit organizations working to help students who are below grade level or experiencing difficulty reading.

Grants are available to support organizations that provide literacy programs for new readers, below-grade-level readers, or readers with learning disabilities. Grant funding is provided to assist in implementing new or expanding existing literacy programs; purchasing new technology or equipment to support literacy initiatives; and/or purchasing books, materials, or software for literacy programs.

Applicants must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, a K-12 private or public school, a college or university, or a public library. Organizations must be located and provide services within twenty miles of a Dollar General store.

The maximum grant amount is $4,000.
