Disaster Response & Resiliency Impact Fund

This fund supports immediate and long-term resources and relief for individuals and communities affected by natural and human-instigated disasters—nationally and internationally. You can collaborate with Thrivent Charitable and other donors to make the change that matters most to you.

Mental health crisis: An epidemic within the pandemic
Disaster can mean what we typically think of—a tornado, flood, or a hurricane—and the rebuilding of structural damage. It can also be a response to disasters like the COVID-19 pandemic or other diseases of endemic proportion. In the wake of COVID-19, Thrivent Charitable responded to urgent needs of some of the hardest hit communities by the pandemic and have also heard loud and clear from our grantees of the mental health crisis, particularly on our most vulnerable. Therefore, we have made a three-year commitment to support these three mental health organizations and their critical mission and work.

    Mental Health Organizations

    NAMI Inc.

    National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. Grant dollars are benefiting the most vulnerable and hardest hit by the pandemic, including communities of color, youth and young adults.

    The Steve Fund

    The Steve Fund is dedicated to the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color. Highly recommended by its peers, they are adapting and innovating during a time when the nation is confronting a public health crisis, including an Equity in Mental Health Framework toolkit, a volunteer Crisis Counselor, and The Knowledge Center full of resources for expert information about mental health and emotional well-being of students of color.

    The AAKOMA Project

    AAKOMA builds the consciousness of youth of color and their caregivers on the recognition and importance of mental health, empowers youth and their families to seek help and manage mental health, and influences systems and services to receive and address the needs of youth of color and their families. Recognizing youth of color are largely absent from mental health research, AAKOMA facilitated the first of its kind study to lay foundational groundwork for a critical analysis of the mental health needs and experiences of intersectional youth of color.
