Giving Commitment

Committed to giving back

Vision Statement

To improve the lives of others by developing a world-class program based on partnerships where employees feel a sense of connection and pride in their communities.

Mission Statement

We are committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which we live and serve through our leadership, financial contributions and volunteer efforts.

Principles of our founders

Following the example set by our founders, Mr. Knabusch and Mr. Shoemaker, La-Z-Boy is committed to enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which we live and serve through leadership, financial contributions and volunteer efforts. Our philanthropic initiatives include the La-Z-Boy Foundation, local community involvement, disaster relief, and Ronald McDonald House Charities, and in 2017, La-Z-Boy Incorporated and the La-Z-Boy Foundation made a combined total of donations of more than $2.5 million.

Our employees exemplify this spirit of giving through leadership and volunteer efforts in their own communities, and for numerous non-profit organizations, which include the United Way, Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity and others.

We live here and we work here.

We believe that it’s important to give back to our communities and we offer two different kinds of support.

Our commitment to comfort runs deep. That’s why La-Z-Boy is the official furniture provider of Ronald McDonald House Charities.

10 years of giving

Over the past ten years, we’ve donated more than 9,000 pieces of furniture to RMHC homes across North America and Canada.

Comfort first

This helps give families a comfortable home away from home while their children receive much-needed medical care.

Award winning

In 2013, La-Z-Boy received the RMHC Outstanding Stewardship Award, which recognizes corporations that have embraced the RMHC mission as their own and exceeded expectations in their support of the charity.

It is our privilege to support RMHC and offer comfort to those who need it most.
