You saw others in need – and responded

Thrivent members and friends around the country came together to provide hurricane relief in 2017

Your generosity made a profound difference

Following the damage and devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, Thrivent members, family and friends responded – with open hearts and helping hands. The impact of their combined generosity was remarkable.

Together with our members and others across the country, Thrivent raised and donated more than $11.7 million and volunteered 136,248 hours to help those whose lives and livelihoods were impacted by the 2017 hurricanes.

Here’s how it breaks down:

  • More than 10,500 individuals personally donated $2.97 million to hurricane relief.
  • Their donations were doubled with a $2.97 million match from Thrivent.

Thrivent members also:

  • Directed more than $1.13 million to nonprofit organizations through the Thrivent Choice® charitable grant program.
  • Led 1,200 Thrivent Action Teams, which raised more than $1.64 million and racked up 136,248 volunteer hours.

In addition, Thrivent donated $3 million to Habitat for Humanity to assist with the rebuilding efforts. These acts demonstrate the desire and ability of Thrivent members to partner together to help those in need.

Thank you for your gifts of time and financial resources when they were needed most.
