Corporate Social Responsibility

Serving Others.

At Dollar General, we are proud to invest in the communities we call home. We believe each Dollar General store and distribution center represents a positive economic impact through the creation of new jobs and career advancement opportunities for employees, access to affordable and quality products in convenient locations for customers and tax revenue generation for local municipalities. We further demonstrate our commitment to being a positive business partner and good neighbor through Dollar General Literacy Foundation grants, which positively impact literacy and education initiatives at local schools, non-profits and libraries.

At Dollar General, corporate responsibility is built into our mission of Serving Others. By providing safe products, supporting our communities and enforcing environmentally-friendly practices, we proudly display the values that make our company great.





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 $200 million in grants to nonprofit organizations that have helped more than 15 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.
