We collect, store, and distribute gently used furniture to visiting international students and scholars when they arrive in Madison. Many arrive to unfurnished apartments. Our program provides them with essentials such as a bed, desk and chair, lighting and other items they might need at a nominal cost. Students tell us this service is invaluable to them and are grateful for our support.
Due to health and safety guidance related to COVID-19, MFIS is not providing or accepting Furniture donations and returns in the summer and fall of 2020. We are monitoring the situation closely and will post our plans for future operations. Watch our COVID-19 Updates and this website page for more information.
