Dollar General Foundation
A legacy of literacy
Dollar General’s commitment to literacy is an integral part of the company’s culture. In fact, Dollar General’s co-founder, J. L. Turner, was functionally illiterate when he started the company.
Dollar General believes learning to read, receiving your GED or learning the English language is an investment that opens doorways for personal, professional and economic growth. That is why our commitment to literacy remains strong. It is the one gift that no one can take away—the one gift that lasts a lifetime.
