Thrivent Action Teams
Thrivent Action Teams make it easy to live generously on your Wise With Money Journey. It starts with a simple question: "Who can I help and how?"
Next, identify a community need and grab friends and family to form a volunteer team and brainstorm ways to address it. Thrivent provides promotional resources and seed money to jump-start your fundraiser, educational event or service project. Your team provides the people power to bring it to life.
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 120 days. Once your project is approved, you'll receive a Thrivent Action Kit that includes:
- A promotional pennant banner
- Thank you cards, name tags, and stickers
- Thrivent Action Team T-shirts
- A $250 Community Impact Card you can use as seed money to get your project off the ground and make a bigger impact
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. You must be 16 years or older to lead a Thrivent Action Team.
Things to keep in mind
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.
