Too many children sleep on the floor
It is a sad truth that an estimated 50,000+ Torontonians are experiencing furniture poverty annually. Furniture Bank supports marginalized and displaced families and individuals experiencing furniture poverty. Clients; including women and children leaving shelters, people transitioning from homelessness, and newcomers and refugees to Canada are in need of your help. Help us combat furniture poverty annually by making a generous donation.

Everyone should have a place to call home
A house is not a home without furniture
Our mission is to create a world in which everyone has access to the stability and dignity of a furnished home. We are working to end furniture poverty one home at a time. So many of your neighbors are forced to choose between having ‘food on the table’ or a table at which to eat. Thanks to the unwavering support of our donors, active partners, and volunteers in 2019, we tangibly change the lives of over 10,000 individuals. Although that is a huge success there is still a lot of work that needs done. With your help we can continue the fight on furniture poverty and make sure everyone one has a home and not just a house.
Why we do it
Because of people like Sharyn
Our clients are important to us. And we believe that all Canadians should have access to a home with dignified furniture. It pains us so much to know that there are so many Canadians here in the GTA that don’t have access to furniture. These are good people, and we will do everything in our power to help them.
Give what you can
Give a one time or monthly donation
Your donation goes a long way. It helps us to continue the fight against furniture poverty and gives Canadians the dignity of a furnished home. Your monthly or one-time donation will have a direct impact on your community.
Many donors are not in a position to make a sizeable major gift to Furniture Bank during their lifetime. By adding a bequest in your Will you can leave a lasting legacy 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.
