Benefiting charities were named when you established your fund. You may make changes as needed by contacting Thrivent Charitable. Please note these provisions are subject to your attorney’s preferred style and state restrictions.

Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from IRA
Note: Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) can only be gifted to Non-Advised Designated funds (i.e. non-advised donor funds), Organizational Endowments, or Community Impact Funds. QCDs cannot be gifted to donor-advised funds.
If you are 70½ or older, you may create a non-advised charitable fund with gifts of qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from your IRA. When making this type of gift, you recommend one or more IRS-qualified charities to receive automatic annual grants from your charitable fund, either in perpetuity or for a term of years. If a charity you recommend loses its tax-exempt status, grants will be reallocated among remaining charities. If all charities cease to exist, remaining charitable support is directed to the Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing Community Fund. When making this type of gift, you do not have advisory capacity over the charitable fund once it is established due to IRS regulations.

To make a gift of QCDs:

  • Contact your IRA administrator and provide them with our Tax ID: 41-1802412. 
Request a QCD be sent directly to:

Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing

PO Box 8072

Appleton, WI 54912-8072

  • Please notify us when the distribution request has been made. We will watch for the check to ensure it’s properly credited to your non-advised fund.
  • We will send a gift acknowledgment for the QCD to share with your tax preparer.
Real estate & closely held stock
Please contact us regarding your proposed gift.
Stock, bonds & mutual funds
To make a gift of stock or mutual fund assets, please contact us. We will provide specific instructions based on the following:
  • Stock held by a brokerage firm, bank or other financial institution
  • Stock held by a company with a transfer agent
  • Stock or mutual funds to be transferred from an account at Thrivent
  • Stock held in paper certificates
The estimated time to complete your gift is dependent on how it’s held. If you’re unclear about how your stock is held, please call us for assistance with related paperwork (statement and/or report) in hand. While there is typically no cost associated with the transfer of stock or mutual funds, there is a nominal fee incurred when we liquidate the transferred assets. These charges are deducted from proceeds of the stock or mutual fund sale/liquidation and do not reduce your potential charitable deduction.
