About Chicago Furniture Bank

The Chicago Furniture Bank is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide dignity, stability and comfort to Chicagoans who face poverty by allowing clients to handpick an entire home’s worth of furnishings for free.

We believe everyone should be able to sleep in a bed, share a family meal at a kitchen table, and enjoy the comfort of a furnished home. Since opening in July of 2018, the CFB has grown to become the largest furniture bank in the nation, furnishing 3,200 homes for 8,000 clients in 2021. We currently furnish 15 homes per day and have more than 50 full-time employees, many of whom are hired from nonprofit workforce development agencies.

The Opportunity

After co-founding and leading the Chicago Furniture Bank since 2018, Griffin Amdur and Andrew Witherspoon have recently decided to step back from day-to-day leadership of the organization to hire a new, full-time Executive Director to lead the next phase of the Chicago Furniture Bank’s growth and impact.

The Executive Director will oversee all aspects of the Chicago Furniture Bank and its sister non-profit, Honest Junk Company, with goal of growing its capacity to furnish more homes for households living in furniture poverty. They will be responsible for strategic planning, business development, people leadership, account management, financial sustainability, and day-to-day operations of the largest furniture bank in the United States.

The ideal Executive Director will bring an entrepreneurial mindset and a passion for building a sustainable business that serves others, enhances dignity, alleviates human suffering, and reduces environmental impact.
