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 accepting Furniture donations and returns at this time because we have limited space. However, we still have furniture essentials that you may need at a nominal cost. Watch our COVID-19 Updates and this website page for more information.
