Thrivent Choice is a giving program that let's members help choose where Thrivent Financial gives back. Members can participate in one or two ways:
- Voting: All benefits and associate members will be eligible to "vote" to distribute a portion of Thrivent Financial's charitable funds among a short list of national charities (Lutheran and non-Lutheran), one to two times per year.
- Choice Dollars: Approximately 30% of benefit members will be able to direct Thrivent Choice Dollars to thousands of Lutheran nonprofit organizations, including Lutheran congregations. (Approximately 75% of past participants in the GivingPlus program will be eligible to direct Choice Dollars.)
Eligibility for Choice Dollars is based on a member's insurance premiums, account values and volunteer leadership. Most eligible benefit members will be able to direct between $25 and $100, and some may be able to direct as much as $500.
