Thrivent Choice

The Thrivent Choice® program encourages benefit members to recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes an amount of its charitable grant funds. Members make this recommendation by directing Choice Dollars to enrolled nonprofit organizations, including churches and schools.

Thrivent designates a minimum of 25 Choice Dollars and a maximum of 5,000 Choice Dollars per eligibility period (Jan. 1 to Dec. 31) to eligible benefit members. Choice Dollars designated during the calendar year can be directed until March 31 of the following year.

Thrivent Action Teams

All members of Thrivent Financial can apply for a Thrivent Action Team. Action Teams are a one-time fundraiser, service activity, or educational event. Once approved, you will receive a Thrivent Action Kit, delivered to your door. It contains everything you need to help make your project a success, including $250 in seed money!

There are several events throughout the school year where you can help MVL through an Action Team. Contact Val Holzhueter,, for more information about those MVL opportunities.
