Corporate Giving Program

Overview

Under the direction of president and CEO Jake Jabs, American Furniture Warehouse has been actively involved with the Colorado community for more than 30 years. For us, giving back is a top priority. As such, American Furniture contributes more than $2 million as well as time and in-kind donations to hundreds of worthwhile organizations each year, including The Muscular Dystrophy Association, Easter Seals Colorado, March of Dimes, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Project C.U.R.E., among many others.


Colorado is home to American Furniture Warehouse, and we are happy to do our part to help our friends and neighbors who need it most.
