Thrivent Action Teams

It starts with an idea powered by your passion. Bring a team together to make an immediate impact on a cause you care about. We'll help get you started. It's easy!

How it works

Think about an unmet need in your community and how you could help. Apply to lead your volunteer team in a one-time fundraiser, service activity or educational event that can be completed within 90 days. Once your project is approved, you'll receive a Thrivent Action Kit, including:

  • Promotional banner.
  • Invitations and thank-you cards.
  • Thrivent Action Team T-shirts.
  • A $250 Community Impact Card you can use as seed money to purchase project supplies and create promotional materials.

How often am I eligible?

All Thrivent members are eligible to lead a Thrivent Action Team. However, the number of teams each member can lead per year depends on his or her membership type. Benefit members are eligible to lead two Thrivent Action Teams per calendar year, and associate members are eligible to lead one per calendar year (maximum of three).

Things to keep in mind

Involve others

Bring together a volunteer team of friends, family and people in your community to have a bigger impact. It's not a gift or a grant. It's seed money, and it's an investment to help get your project started or gain awareness for your cause, rather than directly giving the money to (granting) or purchasing items for (gifting) your cause.

One action team, one project

Multiple members cannot apply to receive a Thrivent Action Kit to be used toward the exact same project.

Report your success

Share your stories, photos and volunteer team info with us after your event – this must be completed before applying to lead your next Thrivent Action Team.
