What Furniture Bank has been able to do

We turned around a $300K loss into a break-even charity in 2014. We scaled our social enterprise model over 200% by 2016 and We expanded our contract with the City of Toronto over 200% by 2018. We’ve been very fortunate to have been able to do so many great things. It’s our desire to help other companies reach the same potential.
