Inspiring stories of generosity

There are thousands of worthy causes; thousands of ways to make a difference. Just ask our members! Their generosity serves the hungry, builds homes, cooks up kindness, fuels fundraisers … there's no end to the inspirational ideas they put into action to help others.

Each Thrivent member is part of a Thrivent Member Network – a regional connection to generous people, awesome programs and fantastic resources to help them give back. Whenever you're inspired to take action, we invite you to get involved and help us change lives.
