Serving Others

When you shop Dollar General, you join an effort to make our communities and our world a better place. We are committed to conducting business in a way that promotes healthy families, thriving communities and a cleaner environment.

Community Commitment

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, including that of our foundations, we strive for meaningful 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.

Since 1993, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation (DGLF) has awarded more than $160 million in grants to nonprofit organizations that have helped more than 10 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 and the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation, to name a few.
