Make the most of your giving
We are here to serve you and carry out your giving goals—goals that reflect your life experiences, values, and passions.
The following questions are designed to provide insight into the giving decisions reflected in your fund. Your responses will also help guide Thrivent Charitable and successor advisors should a recommended charity cease to exist or change its mission so that we can carry out your giving intentions far into the future.
In our role as steward, we perform due diligence on all grants we distribute. We believe that learning more about charities and their work leads to more informed and thoughtful giving decisions; and being an informed and thoughtful giver will result in more effective grants to help charities advance their work. To support and encourage donor research, we suggest you to use the resources below to gather information about specific charities you wish to support, and learn more about charitable giving.
Charity Navigator is America's largest evaluator of charities. Their rating system examines two broad areas of a charity's financial health - how responsibly it functions day-to-day, as well as how well positioned it is to sustain its programs over time. Each charity is then awarded an overall rating, ranging from zero to four stars.
