Help us through this

What do “stay-inside” orders mean to someone who struggles to maintain a roof over their head?

If home is the only safe place to be, you can make sure our most vulnerable community members have the safety and dignity of having a home as we get through this together.

DONORS LIKE YOU HAVE HELPED OVER 100,000 INDIVIDUALS CREATE A HOME!

OVER 5,000 INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES WERE GIFTED FURNITURE IN 2020

OVER 1.5M POUNDS OF FURNISHING REDIRECTED BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

Your gift is far more than the furniture.

It encompasses the psychological, physical and financial benefits that come with the security of a home.

Furniture can be a leading factor in ensuring someone is less likely to re-experience displacement and provide stability in transition.

For women and children escaping violence, newcomers and refugees, and the formerly homeless, the security and stability that comes with an established home plays a key role in the success of their new beginnings.

We are overwhelmed with the compassion our community has demonstrated the past year. Help us do more by gifting the stability and safety of having a home to our neighbours today — for a more resilient tomorrow.

Your gift of:

  • $500 will furnish a families entire home
  • $250 will provide the furniture needed for a child
  • $100 will get a child off the floor with a new mattress
  • $75 will provide a COVID Cleaning and Safety Kit per family
  • $25 will provide bedding and linens

Why we do it

We know how important it is to find safety in a place you can finally call home.

Martin’s story highlights the transformative power of furniture. And that’s with your help.

With more families being transitioned off the streets and shelters and into housing to keep our communities safe, we have been delivering both furniture and home hygiene & cleaning kits.

Estate Planning

Many donors are not in a position to make a sizable major gift to Furniture Bank during their lifetime. By adding a bequest in your Will, you can leave a lasting legacy with one of the most trusted charities in Canada that honours your commitment to social justice and our mission to end furniture poverty.

Bequests, also known as ‘gifts by will’ or ‘testamentary gifts’, are revocable gifts made to a charitable beneficiary through your Will. They can be as simple as including a notation in your Will, or complex with conditions about how you would like your gift to be used – such as designating them to a specific project or fund.

In addition to the lasting social impact your gift will make, a bequest is also an effective way to reduce taxes on your estate after death.
