How to make a gift

Whether you’re contributing to an existing fund or creating a new donor-advised fund, there are several ways to make a gift.

You can give online to any charitable fund via ACH bank transfer or credit card. Choose a one-time gift or recurring donation to a donor-advised fund, organizational endowment fund or one of our impact funds. If you are part of a giving circle, please specify "Women gather giving circle" under the fund name.

For credit/debit card donations, a $0.45 processing fee, plus 2.75% of each gift (3.5% for AMEX) will be charged.

Other ways to give

Please contact us to request wire transfer information.

Name Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing (tax ID # 41-1802412) to receive beneficiary proceeds from qualified retirement plans (IRAs or other qualified plans, life insurance and/or annuities). When we receive the proceeds, they will be allocated to a fund per your Fund Agreement. You can designate all or a percentage of your assets, or name Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investments as contingent beneficiary. 

Please contact us for specific giving instructions when giving through a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.

Following are sample provisions to insert into your will or living trust. To ensure proper distribution of proceeds to your donor-advised fund, please do not name specific benefiting charities in your will or trust. Benefiting charities are listed in your Fund Agreement where you have the flexibility to make changes as needed. Please note these provisions are subject to your attorney’s preferred style and state restrictions.

Specific bequest: I give to Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing (tax ID # 41-1802412), a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, [asset or percent of estate to be given], for the benefit of the [insert donor-advised fund name].

Residuary bequest: I give, bequeath and devise all of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate to Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing (tax ID number: 41-1802412), a Minnesota nonprofit corporation, for the benefit of the [insert donor-advised fund name].

Complete the life insurance application/absolute assignment form with the insured as owner and Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing as beneficiary. The following information must also be included:

  • Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing Tax ID Number: 41-1802412
  • Thrivent Charitable Impact & Investing name and address: 600 Portland Avenue South, Suite 5100, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55415

For more specific guidance and instructions, please contact us.

Note: Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) can only be gifted to non-advised 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.

Please contact us regarding your proposed gift.

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.
