Overview of Dollar Store Plus MORE Corporate Cares PolicyDollar Store Plus MORE serves families in Bolingbrook, Illinois. We are committed to the community we serve, not only by offering quality merchandise at lowest possible prices, but also by supporting the non-profit organizations that seek to improve the quality of life of our customers and others.
To maximize the impact of our charitable contributions, Dollar Store Plus MORE’s Corporate Cares program currently is focused exclusively upon programs whose purpose is to provide the basic necessities of life, including food, clothing and shelter, to low-income and low-middle income families, including senior citizens, minorities and at-risk youth, primarily in the neighborhoods of where the store operates.
Contribution CriteriaTo be eligible to receive a contribution from Dollar Store Plus MORE, the requesting organization must be:
General Limitations and ExclusionsWe believe our contributions should be consistent with both our commitment to our community. Consequently, our budget for charitable contributions is reallocated each fiscal year and will be reviewed quarterly against the Company’s financial performance. While we encourage organizations to submit a request based on their needs, our typical grant is $250. This enables us to maximize our support of local programs in the neighborhoods in which we operate.
To maximize the impact of our charitable giving within our budgetary limits, we will limit our contributions to one grant per organization per fiscal year (July - June), and we will not provide repetitive annual grants or continuing support for organizations or programs. We will review requests from organizations that have received previous support from Dollar Store Plus MORE as new requests and will evaluate the request in relation to other submitted proposals and budgetary considerations.
Our contribution efforts will be focused in the neighborhoods in which we operate. Consequently, Dollar Store Plus MORE will limit our support of national social service organizations, such as the United Way.
No support will be extended to religious activities or programs that serve, or appear to serve, specific religious groups or denominations. However, if a proposal submitted by a church-based or similar organization falls clearly within program guidelines and is intended to serve a broad segment of the community as the program of a comparable non-religious organization, we will consider the request on the same basis as any other request.
While Dollar Store Plus MORE believes in the value of all charitable endeavors, generally our contributions program will not provide funds for:
