Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is a Fortune 500 financial services membership organization helping nearly 2.5 million members achieve financial security and give back to their congregations and communities.

A chapter is a geographic group of Thrivent Financial for Lutheran’s members who create and participate in charitable, social and educational activities.  All Thrivent Financial members belong to a chapter, which provides a way for them to connect with one another for social or educational events, as well as give back to their communities, congregations and causes they care about.


Thrivent Action Teams are an exciting benefit of membership that can help you help others be wise with money and live generously. This tool helps you support the causes you are passionate about and strengthen your community. Getting started is fun and easy:

Identify an unmet need in your community that you are passionate about. Your project should bring people together for a one-time fundraiser, service activity or educational event that can be completed within 90 days. As a team leader, you will invite your friends, family and even community members to help. Please visit for further information or to apply.

Once your idea is approved, watch your mail for the Thrivent Action Kit to arrive. It comes complete with promotional signage, T-shirts and other resources to make your project a success. It even comes with a Community Impact Card with $250 in seed money to help cover some of the project costs like promotional, material and rental expenses. It’s an exciting time when members like you help make a greater impact in the community.


The Thrivent Choice® program allows you to direct Choice Dollars to enrolled charities of your choice. Since 2010, more than $330 million has been distributed to churches and nonprofits nationwide. By directing Choice Dollars, eligible members can recommend how to distribute some of Thrivent’s charitable funds among thousands of 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, including congregations, camps, schools, seminaries, campus ministries and more.

Members become eligible for Thrivent Choice® based on insurance premiums, contract values and Thrivent volunteer leadership and then have the power to recommend how Thrivent distributes some of its charitable grant funds using a vehicle called Choice Dollars.
