 “But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” —2 Corinthians 8:7

God has given abundantly to us through the gift of his Son. A natural and appropriate response to that gift is to give generously to the needs of others. We reflect God’s love and demonstrate our gratitude for God’s gifts when we give back.

Giving back has always been important to Thrivent Financial and its members. Thrivent Choice—Thrivent’s member-advised charitable grant program—provides an easy way for members to recommend where Thrivent should distribute some of its charitable outreach funds. Members can help support enrolled organizations they care about by directing Choice Dollars®.

Nearly 32,000 churches, schools, camps and other nonprofit organizations are enrolled in Thrivent Choice. Members can recommend organizations to be added to the list of those eligible to receive Choice Dollars grant funding. More than $54 million in Choice Dollars grant funds were distributed to churches and other nonprofit organizations in 2015.

Directing Choice Dollars could have a tremendous impact locally by helping to support the mission of your church, strengthen the community you live in and make a difference in the lives of church members. Visit to learn more.
