DENVER - The business school at CU-Denver is getting ready to expand thanks to a $10 million donation by Jake Jabs, founder and CEO of American Furniture Warehouse.
It's the largest donation the school has ever received.
Jabs has supported an entrepreneurship center at Montana State University in addition to numerous charities.
He chose to make this transformative gift to CU Denver's Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship, where he has guest-lectured on occasion, as part of his broader personal goals of celebrating entrepreneurial values.
Jabs's gift is one of more than 275,000 gifts made during Creating Futures, a $1.5 billion fundraising campaign to enhance University of Colorado education, research, outreach, and health programs benefiting citizens throughout and beyond Colorado.
