Organizations must be a section 501(c)(3) Lutheran or non-Lutheran organization that is nationally recognized and has a local presence. Check out our For Organizations page for a complete list of eligibility requirements.
Selection of Organizations
Thrivent Financial gives members the opportunity to nominate national Lutheran and non-Lutheran organizations to be considered as recipient organizations. Chapter leaders are then asked to help narrow down the list of nominees via a survey. Thrivent Financial makes the final decision on the Voting Event recipient organizations based on chapter leader input and on information received from each of the organizations.
Distribution of Funds
Funds are distributed to organizations based on the percentage of total votes they receive. Organizations receive their funds within one month after the Voting Event closes.
