Donors must itemize deductions to receive a charitable income tax deduction. Charitable giving can result in tax, legal and financial consequences. Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing® does not provide legal, accounting or tax advice. Consult your attorney or tax professional.

While diversification can help reduce market risk, it does not eliminate it. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market. Investing involves risks, including the possible loss of principal.

Performance results will include Thrivent Charitable administrative fees and may differ from the results of the underlying fund.
