About Furniture Share

What Is Furniture Share?

We are the only furniture bank south of Tualitin and north of Sacramento. Furniture Share is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1998, in Corvallis to serve the greater Willamette Valley.

We accept furniture and household-item donations from the community and distribute them back to residents in need. All donations must pass a health and safety inspection to ensure no additional hardship on our clients from broken or contaminated items.

Clients are referred from 100+ local government, veteran, religious, and nonprofit organizations. These individuals live across the Willamette Valley, but the majority are residents of Corvallis and Albany.

With a fully funded $400,000 annual budget, we can support the needs of more than 5,000 individuals referred to us every year!
