An integral part of Dollar General's mission of Serving Others is our charitable efforts in the communities we call home. Through our charitable outreach, we strive for a real and lasting impact on individuals and families. We believe the one gift that lasts a lifetime and provides individuals with the opportunity for a better future is the ability to read well. More..

Since 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF) has awarded more than $120 million in grants to nonprofit organizations that have helped more than 7.3 million individuals learn to read, prepare for their high school equivalency test or learn English.

While literacy is our primary charitable focus, Dollar General also supports disaster relief efforts and other initiatives through national partnerships. Some of our partners include The American Red Cross, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation and Autism Speaks to name few.

Dollar General has also partnered with state leaders in Tennessee, Florida and Georgia to initiate the Paychecks for Patriots hiring program, which matches our military veterans to meaningful career opportunities.
