Bob's Discount Furniture Charitable Foundation
Charitable giving and community aid have always been important elements of our company culture here at Bob’s Discount Furniture. Each month, the Charitable Foundation along with Bob’s Outreach provide aid and donations to hundreds of organizations and individuals with over 2.75 million dollars in gift certificates and monetary donations distributed each year to social service agencies, charities, group homes and community fundraisers, children’s charities, schools and community service groups.
When Bob Kaufman founded the company in 1991, he knew that making giving back a part of the Bob’s culture was the right thing to do. A staple in each Bob’s Discount Furniture store, the Bob’s Café is more than just free goodies and gourmet coffee, it’s also one of the ways that Bob’s gives back to the community. Each Café participates in Bob’s Café Collections for a Cause, a program in which donations from customers are collected in store, matched 100% by the company, and donated to a different charity each quarter. This program helps support organizations including the Special Olympics, Autism Speaks, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, and the Pajama Program.
Bob’s Discount Furniture supports the mission of March of Dimes to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. Bob’s teams across the country partake in the March of Dimes Walk taking place in their communities along with donations to the foundation. Bob’s Outreach team and local store managers also perform at least one Random Act of Kindness each month, driven by requests from the community.
