TO ALL THRIVENT FINANCIAL MEMBERS
Recently, members helped direct $1 million in Thrivent Financial Outreach funds among 10 national charities through the first-ever Thrivent Choice voting event. You may have participated in it.
Now, eligible benefit members can participate in Choice Dollars, the second part of Thrivent Choice. Through Choice Dollars, you can help choose where Thrivent Financial distributes part of its charitable funds among thousands of Lutheran Organizations, including our own congregation and school, Trinity.
Annually, as a Thrivent member you will be given Choice Dollars. If you don't use them each year, you lose them. It may not be many dollars but if we all take advantage of these assigned dollars and put them to work as soon as possible we can make a difference. Its all a part of good stewardship.
To assign your choice dollars simply go on line and visit: Thrivent.com/choicedollars or call 1-800-847-4836 and say: "Thrivent Choice" and select the organization you want to receive your choice dollars. If you have any questions call Duane Brosowske at 527-7452.
What is Thrivent Choice?
Thrivent Choice Voting enables all Thrivent members age 16 and older to choose from a short list of national Lutheran and non-Lutheran organizations to share in $1 million of Thrivent Financial's charitable grant funds. The money is divided based on the percentage of votes each organization receives from members. The second Voting Event is currently underway.
Choice Dollars™ allows eligible members to help direct our grant funds to thousands of enrolled Lutheran organizations, such as schools, camps, seinaries, world ministries and local Lutheran congregations. Members eligible for Choice Dollars are notified through a letter from Thrivent Financial.
Members can check their program status and current available Choice Dollars at Thrivent.com/thriventchoice or by phone at 1-800-847-4836 (say "Thrivent Choice" at the prompt). For more information on Thrivent Choice, visit the Thrivent Choice website or talk to your Thrivent Financial representative.
